Northland Foundation awards 52 grants
Friday, November 04, 2016
During the third quarter of 2016, the Northland Foundation approved 52 grants, awarding a total of $421,850 to serve the people and communities of the seven-county region.
A significant grant of $105,000 during the quarter was awarded to CHUM (Churches United in Ministry) to support early childhood programming at the Steve O'Neil Apartments in Duluth, which provides 44 units of permanent supportive housing to families with children that have experinced persistent homelessness, as well as 6 units of emergency housing. The term supportive housing means that more than simply shelter, families have access to a range of supportive services to stabilize their lives. This programming is a key component of "wrap around" services at the Steve O'Neil Apartments to help parents and their children who have experienced instability and trauma to thrive and, ultimately, to break the cycle of family homelessness.
