May 23, 2017 – We were thrilled when Lisa Jacobsen, Program Manager stopped by today to present a check for $60,000 to support our Village Program. The 2017 Orlando Sentinel Family Fund, A McCormick Foundation fund grant award will help to cover per diem housing expenses for homeless and former foster youth as they work to achieve independence and transition successfully to adulthood! The grant will further help ensure at-risk youth have access to education and employment supports, transportation assistance and safe housing.
