National Center for Families Learning expanding in Louisville

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - An education initiative that benefits families will soon be expanded in Louisville.

The National Center for Families Learning, or NCFL, will expand to seven new sites.

The expansion is funded by a $1.5 million collective donation from several generous sponsors.

NCFL, which is headquartered in Louisville, focuses on educating children and parents.

The program currently serves more than 20 cities across the US.

"I really think that this has helped me be a better teacher," NCFL participant Deraldo Hall said. "Not just a parent, but be a better teacher to my kids. And, it's helping me grow with my kids at the same time."

The expansion will support programming at 2 Not 1, the Urban League, AMPED and several adult education sites.
