Mission Giving and Outreach awarded sixteen grants this year (2021) for a total of $43,000, thanks to your generous contributions. The majority of the grants support Homeless Prevention and Housing in some way, as that was your top priority demonstrated in this year’s survey. The survey also registered Hunger, Abuse and Neglect, Mental Health, Human Rights, Refugee Support and Education. Most organizations actually have programs which fall into more than one category, but their requests are often for one specific area. Here are our breakdowns for your information. We strive to be faithful to your wishes.
The grants for HOMELESS SUPPORT AND PREVENTION in varying amounts went to Habitat for Humanity, Homeward Pikes Peak, Partners in Housing, La Puente in Alamosa, and One Nation Walking Together.
In the area of HUNGER, we added a new mission, Food to Power, located in the Southeast part of Colorado Springs, plus Westside Cares, and Tri-Lakes Cares.
Our grants for MENTAL HEALTH AND NEGLECT went to Inside Out, The Place, Depression/Bipolar Support Alliance, Fostering Hope, The Assistance League and Finding our Voices.
Grants to support REFUGEES in our area went to Accompaniment and Sanctuary Coalition, and to Threesixty.
