BHHS Legacy Foundation Awards $1 Million Grant to St. Vincent de Paul
In November, BHHS Legacy Foundation awarded one of the largest grant awards in the organization’s history—a $1 million grant to St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) to support their Building a Resilient Community capital campaign. The Foundation award is specifically designated to the Ozanam Manor program, which provides a bridge to permanent housing for homeless men and women age 50 and above, along with physically or mentally disabled adults 18 and over, by providing temporary housing in small dormitories, meals, free laundry, and other necessities as well as case managers who help residents work toward the goal of permanent housing.
