Grant funds new van for emergency shelter
Submitted By Carol Arata
Abode Services recently received a grant in the amount of $40,000 from the Fremont Bank Foundation to purchase a new 12-passenger van and trailer for Sunrise Village Emergency Shelter. This van and trailer will help staff members transport homeless adults and children at the shelter to medical and service appointments, transport program supplies, help move families into new homes, and more.
"The Fremont Bank Foundation has been a longtime partner of Abode Services," said Executive Director Louis Chicoine. "We appreciate the continued support they offer to safety net providers so homeless and low-income families and individuals have access to resources to improve their well-being and quality of life."
