Thank You to Our Foundation Partners
Thanks to the support of our partners during COVID-19, we’ve continued to provide services to our patients and residents.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on so many lives and many organizations, including Care For the Homeless. But thanks to remarkably quick responses and the generosity of several of our current foundation partners, CFH successfully managed to minimize the impact, providing continuous services to our patients and residents. We would like to thank and recognize these foundation partners, starting with the group below.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, the Foundation responded by providing grants focused on vulnerable and impacted communities in New York and other hard-hit regions. CFH is one of two NYC organizations that received the generous support of $500,000. This is one of the largest foundation grants CFH has ever received. The grant has been allocated toward emergency supplies. In addition, it sustain our staffing level to maintain health care services during the pandemic.
CFH received a grant of $250,000 from the Foundation’s Coronavirus Emergency Support program. The funds will support the critical costs of medications for uninsured patients experiencing homelessness.
The Trust’s board and leadership responded to this public health crisis and the impact on CFH, with a generous grant of $200,000. The grant supports our most pressing operating costs and COVID-19 related needs. CFH has been a partner with the Trust in an innovative initiative, The Collaborative for Homeless Healthcare. The initiative focuses on stabilizing health for high-need New Yorkers.
Foundations, corporations and individuals that responded to the crisis formed The New York Community Trust’s NYC COVID-19 Response and Impact Fund. The New York Community Trust took on the important role of managing the Fund. CFH received a grant totaling $127,000. It covered increased expenses created by the pandemic, including medical supplies, cleaning costs and staffing.
