Evansville-based Youth First recently was awarded a Lilly Endowment Grant worth $281,000 from the Youth Program Resilience Fund of Lilly Endowment Inc.

According to Youth First President and CEO Parri Black, the grant will help more than 42,000 local young people get access to social workers and other services to help families.

The grant will make sure schools across southwest Indiana will be staffed with social workers. Youth First says it will extend those services through next summer after the school year ends.

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
