House of Hope, a nonprofit provider of substance abuse and mental illness programming in South Florida, has been awarded a $10,000 COVID-19 Response Grant from the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, which strives to support and partner with nonprofit organizations that address the most pressing needs and strive to bring positive change to communities.
Like most nonprofit organizations, House of Hope has been hit hard by COVID-19. The grant will help the service organization provide basic necessities to its residents as well as help with the anticipated budget deficit. Essentials that the agency provides include food, clothing, furniture, financial assistance, information and referral, and life-changing case management for those affected by substance abuse, among other issues.
“We are so thankful for the generosity of The Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties during this unprecedented time of need,” said House of Hope CEO Sue Glasscock. “Our clients are a vulnerable population during this pandemic and with this donation, we will be able to ensure that they stay on track with their treatment and continue on their journey to recovery.”
Many House of Hope clients lack the financial resources to seek treatment. The goal is to return the residents to the community as productive and self-supporting citizens.
