CHARLESTON, S.C., Aug. 24, 2021 – The MolinaCares Accord (“MolinaCares”), in collaboration

Neighborhood (CPN), an organization supporting the development of local youth. MolinaCares’
grant will help fund KidsWell, CPN’s school-based health program, and implement a clinic at the
Mary Ford Early Learning and Family Engagement Center.

“We are pleased to partner with Charleston Promise Neighborhood’s to support their mission of
empowering children and families throughout the county, especially in underserved communities,”

Neighborhood’s health and wellness initiatives,” said Sherrie Snipes-Williams, chief executive
