The Woodlawn Foundation is continuing its work to revitalize the east Birmingham community it's named after with the opening of a child development center.

In a partnership with the Woodlawn Foundation, the James Rushton I Foundation has moved its early learning center from the downtown YMCA Youth Center to a newly renovated facility in Woodlawn.

The center's new 16,000 square feet facility is located in a former bank branch at 5512 1st Ave. S. in Woodlawn. The James Rushton Early Learning Center formerly operated in downtown for about a decade.

“As the smaller chamber operating in the shadow of a larger, very aggressive one nearby, the North Myrtle Beach Chamber committed to take its game to the next level.  You and the NCDS team not only drove the creation of a bold new multi-year strategy, you generated buy in and a huge boost in revenue.  A great side benefit of launching and funding a new initiative was NCDS’ identification and engagement of a cadre of new leaders who had never really participated, much less invested at significant levels.  Your methodology works, and your experience in hundreds of other communities paid off for us in a major way.  So much so, we plan to kick off the next multi-year campaign this year.   In my book, NCDS remains the ‘gold standard’ for community development fundraising.”
