Press Release
[Washington, D.C.] “ Congressman Brad Sherman announced today that the House of Representatives passed a bill providing $100,000 for care management and expansion of the intergenerational daycare program at ONEgeneration in Van Nuys, formerly known as ONE.

"ONEgenerations intergenerational daycare is a model program that provides services to both young children and seniors," said Sherman. "Its a model that is working, and waiting lists for the program grow daily. I am pleased that my colleagues supported my request and this important Valley project," he said.

ONEgeneration is a nonprofit organization operating in the San Fernando Valley which promotes healthy aging, encourages successful early childhood development, and provides vital, quality intergenerational programs serving the needs of seniors, children and their families throughout the region.

These federal funds, which still must be approved by the U.S. Senate and signed into law by the President, are in addition to the $90,000 Sherman secured for ONE generation last year. Those funds allowed construction of a new wing for the daycare center to begin this year.
