SAFE Grants $10,000 to Help Kids in Foster Care Moving to New Homes
SAFE Credit Union is committing $10,000 to help area children and teens living in foster care with mental health services provided by Stanford Sierra Youth & Family Services throughout Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer and Yolo counties. The grant will be used to offer a continuum of care to local youths living in foster care – many of whom are recovering from childhood trauma – seeking and moving into permanent homes.
“Our goal is to help get foster youth into permanent and loving homes, and to support them along the way as well as after as they settle into their new lives,” says Laura Heintz, Chief Executive Officer of Stanford Sierra Youth & Families. “This grant from SAFE Credit Union will help us meet their emotional needs during this process.” Read the full article here.
