Abode Services receives grant
Submitted By Paul T. Rosynsky
Abode Services, a nonprofit organization, working to end homelessness in Alameda and Santa Clara counties, is pleased to announce that it has received a $30,000 grant from the East Bay Community Foundation.
The grant originates from the Despeaux Good Works Fund at the East Bay Community Foundation. This fund was created from a portion of the estate of Harriet Despeaux, a member of Abode ServicesÕ Board of Directors. Until her death in 2011, Harriet Despeaux was a dedicated supporter of several nonprofits in the East Bay, and a leading advocate for increasing access to affordable, supportive housing as a means of ending homelessness.
ÒWe are very grateful to the East Bay Community Foundation for this generous funding,Ó said Abode Services Executive Director Louis Chicoine. ÒBy helping us provide homes to vulnerable families and individuals in our community, this gift will truly honor HarrietÕs legacy.Ó
