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.
This grant will provide funds to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan to purchase high-protein food items such as meat, eggs, peanut butter, and beans. For those who experience a shortage of food, high protein items are a necessary source of good nutrition. While the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan has proven to be a model in addressing the acquisition, storage, and distribution of food items, purchasing high-protein foods decreases the possibility of running out of these highly nutritious items even when donations are inconsistent.
The Mott Foundation, through its four grantmaking programs, funds a variety of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and projects throughout the United States, which together receive about three quarters of the Foundation’s grant funds each year.
