Lincoln Financial Foundation has awarded a most generous grant in support of the Friends Program on several fronts. Grant funds will provide much needed financial assistance as follows:
Friends Emergency Housing Program [http://www.friendsprogram.org/programs/emergency-housing]
For families experiencing homelessness to receive supportive guidance and resources to promote self-sufficiency in a dignified environment that allows families to remain together while they work to find and maintain housing of their own.
Friends RSVP Caregivers Program [http://www.friendsprogram.org/images/2018CaregiversBrochure.pdf]
Caregiver volunteers help reduce isolation for homebound seniors with friendly visits for companionship, transportation for grocery shopping or medical appointments, and more.
Friends RSVP Food Insecurity Project [http://www.friendsprogram.org/images/Friends-RSVP-Food-Insecurity-Projects.pdf]
Retired & Senior Volunteer Program volunteers work with partner agencies in support of community gardens and gleaning programs; staffing soup kitchens and assisting with emergency meal offerings for families in need; and collection, packaging and distribution of food and other needed items to children and families.
Thank You, Lincoln Financial Foundation, for helping us help so many vulnerable populations in our community is so many ways!
