Community Foundation Launches New Initiative with $1 Million Gift
Community Foundation Offers $1 Million to Address Mental Health, Substance Use and Homelessness
Thanks to the generosity of a local family, the Community Foundation is offering $1 Million through the “Creating a Better Tomorrow” initiative to provide funding opportunities aimed at addressing issues related to mental health, substance use and/or homelessness within its service area of Clay, Sullivan and Vigo counties.
Given the limited funding available, the Community Foundation seeks to fund programs that are proven in efficacy, either locally or in communities similar to its own, that can be replicated within its service area. The Community Foundation further seeks to invest in continuing local programs that are effective in reducing substance use, mental health issues and/or homelessness.
“In these times, issues regarding mental health, substance use and homelessness are at the forefront of our communities,” said Lea Anne Crooks, Chair of the Wabash Valley Community Foundation Board of Directors. “The Community Foundation recognizes that some individuals within our service area can benefit from additional assistance, which is why we are pleased to announce the ‘Creating a Better Tomorrow’ initiative.”
