Orange County Foundation Changes Lives
Some Kinship Center families are especially grateful this year to an Orange County Foundation that was created to meet some extraordinary needs of ordinary people.
The Change a Life Foundation, headquartered in Irvine, CA, has a straightforward mission: to help individuals and families who, through no fault of their own, have experienced an injury, illness, or catastrophic life event, and who are suffering financial hardship, by providing support for critically needed direct services that promote their self-sufficiency and improve their quality of life.
In the past year, the Foundation has provided more than $40,000 in specific assistance to families who are clients of Kinship Center and who were identified by Kinship Center professionals because of some critical special needs.
“The Foundation makes the application process so easy that even those staff members with no grant writing experience are able to submit compelling proposals outlining the needs of select families,” says Kinship Center Regional Executive Director Allison Maxon. “Our social workers, therapists and others throughout the state are tremendously enthusiastic about being able to provide extra help for client families in this way. We are so grateful to Change a Life Foundation.”blog comments powered by Disqus
