Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - BUSINESS -

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.
