Centro Community Hispanic Association (centro CHA) announced today that it received a $40,000 grant from the S. Mark Taper Foundation which aims to fund general operating support for the organization.
This will include enhancing free positive family and community strengthening services through case-management, workforce development, college access, summer safety alternatives, safe passages, counseling, immigration legal services and referrals to other agencies.
Centro CHA’s goal is to increase the quality of programs and services that are dedicated to improving the social and economic development of low-income youth and families in Long Beach while promoting safe, healthy and sustainable places for them to work in.
The S. Mark Taper Foundation which is a private family foundation founded in 1989, awards annual grants through a competitive application and review process dedicated to enhancing the quality of people’s lives by supporting nonprofit organizations and their work.
The Foundation organizes one grant cycle every year giving to children, healthcare, social services, employment, education and the environment.
Free news isn’t cheap.
