Sierra HOPE receives grant funding for 2018
Sierra HOPE has received four new grants totaling $61,440 for 2018.
The Calaveras-Mariposa Community Action Agency awarded a grant of $40,940 in support of our Community Food Pantry and Homeless Prevention programs. Some of the funds will be used to purchase food for the pantry, and some will provide direct assistance for emergency rent or utility payments for very low-income residents of Calaveras County to prevent or alleviate homelessness.
The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation and Macy’s have given a grant of $3000 towards services for people living with HIV and AIDS. The funding allows us more flexibility in responding to clients’ needs.
The Calaveras Community Foundation has given a grant of $5000 to purchase food for our community food pantry during 2018. As a result, we are able to continue to allow people in need of help to obtain enough food to access our pantry twice a month instead of just once.
The Mark Twain Health Care District awarded Sierra HOPE $12,500 to provide additional homeless prevention services to low-income residents of Calaveras County who are at risk of becoming homeless or being without essential utilities like electricity, heat or water.
