ARGI Gives Back to the Community!
Community Action of Southern Kentucky is pleased to announce it has received a $3,500 grant from the ARGI Gives Community Grant Program. These funds will support the New Day Program with rent subsidies for previously homeless single mothers and their children.
The New Day Housing Program is a two-year program designed to help homeless women with children and/or families find decent, safe, permanent housing in their community. The program strives to empower these families to build a foundation to achieve stability, economic security and move out of poverty. Intensive Case Management and wrap around services are provided to families, such as employment services, food, utility assistance, and connections with other community resources. Participants are educated on understanding leases and their rights as tenants, thereby giving them a voice and the tools they need to move forward. The funds from ARGI will provide rent subsidies for families in the New Day Program.
The New Day Program embodies the spirit of hope and is at the core of our mission to empower people in Southern Kentucky to achieve stability and economic security. Being a single mother myself, I can’t imagine not having anywhere to turn to be able to provide a safe and warm home for my child. At Community Action, we not only find homes for these families, but also improve their lives. Every child deserves to have a home. We are so thankful that ARGI has partnered with us in this endeavor and grateful to them for enabling us to assist more families.
ARGI Gives awards quarterly grants to nonprofit and charitable organizations through a competitive application and review process. Emily Trujillo, ARGI Gives Grant Chair, said "Our goal is to provide meaningful support to nonprofit organizations for programs and projects that directly impact our communities. ARGI Gives is proud to partner with Community Action of Southern Kentucky’s New Day Program, which will provide small, but meaningful financial assistance for families in their time of need. We strongly believe in the organization’s mission, and hope that this grant will continue to empower families in Southern Kentucky to obtain stability and reach economic security."
