Grant Recipient Spotlight

Family Promise of Porter County

Family Promise of Porter County helps families experiencing homelessness and low-income families achieve independence with temporary shelter, personal growth development plans, and case management. The Women’s Fund supported helping connect women and children and families with sustainable housing opportunities.

Dressed for School

Dressed for School aims to help local elementary students in need by providing them with quality clothing at no cost to them or their families, and the students get to select their own clothing in a shopping environment two times a year. The expansion of the program into middle schools was supported by the Women’s Fund.

Hilltop Neighborhood House

The grant awarded to Hilltop Neighborhood House from the Women’s Fund retrofitted a minibus to become Hilltop’s Bookmobile. The Bookmobile provides books to children in the community who may not have access to them, and it can often be seen out in neighborhoods with Hilltop’s mobile food pantry.
