We are incredibly grateful for the recent grant funding we've received!
Native American Connections recently received a generous grant from the Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation to support Services for Homeless Youth and for Resident Children Services. Additionally, the Katz Amsterdam Charitable Trust awarded NAC $300,000 for General Support in recognition of NAC’s ongoing work in human services which align with their Racial Justice / Mental and Behavioral Health initiatives for 2023.
NAC provides the most comprehensive program for homeless youth, ages 18-26, in Maricopa County. HomeBase in Central Phoenix has 25 beds and HomeBase Surprise, opening later this year, will have 44 beds. These Low-barrier to entry shelters provide safe, secure housing, three meals a day, Case Managers and Case Aides, education, employment and financial counseling so that youth gain stability, life skills, and resources for independent adult living. NAC’s services for Resident Children provide safe, healthy activities afterschool and during the summer months for more than 400 school-age children in seven Affordable Housing sites.
Thank you to our generous grant funders! Your support will greatly benefit our clients, residents, and community!
