MEETING BASIC NEEDS OF FOOD, SHELTER, SAFETY, & INCLUSIVITY
Our donors, advocates, and volunteers are making a difference in COMMUNITY BASICS. With funding awards to partners that support programs and initiatives that mobilize resources and volunteers, we secure a supportive, safe and welcoming community
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT: We all share a stake helping our neighbors get help when they are struggling or in crisis.
Every person we can transition away from dependence on some type of assistance and to a place where he or she can contribute to the community will help stabilize the region.
Hungry children suffer from iron deficiencies that affect cognitive and physical development. They are twice as likely to repeat a grade. Hungry teens are five times more likely to commit suicide.
The homeless tend to lose connections with family and friends resulting in a weaker support system. Homeless children are absent from school more often, experience increased behavior problems and more barriers to learning.
Children in a safe, stimulating, and nurturing environment thrive.
Seniors and people with disabilities can make great contributions to our society when they remain independent.
