In week twenty, $45,000 in COVID-19 Community Support Grants were awarded to three organizations to provide essential hygiene support to vulnerable youth, mental health support to caregivers of special needs individuals, and financial support to day laborers affected by COVID-19.
- I Am You 360
- Therapeutic Ranch for Animals and Kids (TRAK)
- Southside Presbyterian Church/Southside Worker Center
I Am You 360 serves vulnerable youth, including homeless and foster care youth, through a unique blend of philanthropy and community assistance by creating employment, mentoring, and development opportunities for them.
During COVID-19, I Am You 360 has transitioned to virtual programs, curbside drop off and pick up for supplies for youth. Their focus for this funding is on creating Hygiene Empowerment Bags filled with essential hygiene items, including those needed to protect against COVID-19, for vulnerable youth.
