Since it was established in 1926, the Mott Foundation has maintained a deep commitment to its hometown of Flint, Michigan. This longstanding support reflects the Foundation’s belief that through involved people partnering with strong organizations, the greater Flint community can face its challenges and create a more vibrant and sustainable future.
This grantmaking, done primarily through the Foundation’s Flint Area program, includes support for educational and cultural programs; economic and downtown development; job training; and emergency and human services.
Shelter of Flint, Inc. provides services for approximately 1,300 homeless people per year. The vast majority of these clients are families who are economically challenged. The principal goal of the agency is to assist the homeless in achieving stability through a continuum of care model ranging from crisis prevention and counseling to elimination of the root causes of homelessness. This grant will help to support the organization's Comprehensive Emergency Assistance Program, which focuses on clients housed in the emergency shelter. Individuals and families will receive food and shelter assistance as well as comprehensive case management services and the development of long-range plans toward permanent stability.
This grant will provide support for Catholic Charities of Shiawassee and Genesee Counties to operate intervention services for individuals and families in crisis. The North End Soup Kitchen and Holy Angels Warming Center assist those with limited or no income by providing hot meals, personal need items, and respite from cold weather during the harsh winter months. The St. Christopher Medical Transport Program provides transportation for critically ill children and their families to medical appointments across the state.
Since 1893, the Salvation Army of Genesee County has been working to alleviate hardship by assisting Genesee County residents with basic-level needs such as rent and utility payments, emergency shelter, food and personal needs items, and transportation. This grant will help support the Salvation Army of Genesee County with its Rent and Utility Assistance Program to meet the growing needs of families in the community.
