Neighborhood Christian Centers
Poverty - $25,000 Grantee
In collaboration with partner organizations, Neighborhood Christian Centers (NCC) will pilot Holistic Home Visitation Services, a program to assess immediate and critical needs of families, to refer partner services to address these needs, and to track progress through assigned case managers. The Community Foundation grant will support a program pilot with 120 families at an NCC site within a Section 8 Housing Development. Long term, building from the pilot, NCC then hopes to expand to serve up to 800 families with an overall goal of 60% or more of the families in the Holistic Home Visitation Services program to improve in their stability levels.
