Abode Services receives challenge match grant
Submitted By Katie Derrig
Abode Services, provider of housing and services to homeless families and individuals, has received a challenge match grant from the Sobrato Family Foundation of up to $123,000 over two years. The Sobrato Family Foundation will match new or increased donations made during the current fiscal year (July 2013 - June 2014), up to $60,000.
Funding from the Sobrato Family Foundation will help support the operation of Abode Services' programs. These programs provide housing and services to homeless families and individuals in Alameda and Santa Clara Counties, helping vulnerable people escape crisis and work toward self-sufficiency.
"At Abode Services, we know that people donate to us because they want to have an impact on the lives of homeless children and adults," said Louis Chicoine, Executive Director of Abode Services. "This challenge from the Sobrato Family Foundation lets us go to our community and give them the chance to double that impact, and make even more of a difference in the lives of these families and individuals. We are thrilled that the Sobrato Family Foundation's generosity is making this matching challenge possible."
