Abode Services, one of the largest organizations providing housing services to homeless individuals and families in the Bay Area, announced July 27, 2011, that it has received a challenge grant of $102,500 from the Sobrato Family Foundation of Cupertino, CA.
The grant, to be paid over a two-year period, will be dedicated to general operating expenses. The Foundation will match $50,000 in new or increased cash donations to Abode Services from non-governmental sources made between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012.
"Abode Services believes that everyone should have a home," said Louis Chicoine, Executive Director of Abode Services. "This generous grant from the Sobrato Family Foundation will be tremendously helpful as we work every day to assist people in our communities in making a successful transition to stable housing."
