TD Bank donates to help homeless families
TD Bank through the TD Charitable Trust awarded a $15,000 grant to the Friends Association for Care & Protection of Children in West Chester to be used for its Outreach to Homeless Families program.
Families are referred to Friends Association through ConnectPoints and a case manager immediately begins working with families to assist them in accessing emergency benefits, housing coordination and employment assistance. Friends Association was able to prevent homelessness for 96 families, including 187 children in Chester County this past year.
“The Outreach to Homeless Families Program was created to provide immediate help to Homeless Families that had not had help previously. We are grateful for the support from the TD Charitable Trust for new initiatives that help us to continue to grow to meet the needs of our community, ” said Catherine Friedman, Friends Association executive director.
