BRUNSWICK, Maine (September 3, 2015) – Tedford Housing, a nonprofit agency working to find lasting solutions to end homelessness, was recently awarded grants from the Stephen & Tabitha King Foundation and the John T. Gorman Foundation. The total amount of funding awarded was $42,500.
The Stephen & Tabitha King Foundation awarded Tedford Housing $20,000 as the result of a grant application. The funds will be used over the course of a year to help to insure the availability of case management services throughout all of the Tedford’s programs, particularly for those individuals without a payor source for services.
The John T. Gorman Foundation awarded $22,500 to Tedford Housing in grant money. The funds will be used to provide support for mental health services to guests of Tedford’s emergency adult shelter.
“Foundation support is critical for Tedford Housing in order to fulfill its mission,” says executive director Craig Phillips. “These funds will allow our case managers to provide much-needed services to Tedford’s guests so that they may be able to find and maintain permanent housing.”
Tedford Housing works together with people in their communities to find lasting solutions to the challenges of homelessness. We provide shelter, housing, and services that empower adults, children and families in need. For more information, call 207-729-1161 or visit www.tedfordhousing.org.
