The Amherst H. Wilder Foundation has received a grant from The William and Connie Carroll Endowment Fund of The Saint Paul Foundation to support families experiencing health and financial challenges.
The grant will support a rental assistance fund to subsidize housing for Kofi families with children struggling with mental health and behavioral challenges due to experienced childhood trauma. Kofi Services are culturally specific, school and home-based programs developed to increase the positive functioning of African-American youth.
“Health equity for our communities means our neighbors don’t have to make a choice between paying their rent and paying their families' medical bills. The Saint Paul Foundation is grateful to the donors who empowered us to help the network of nonprofits supporting families through challenging times,” said Ann Mulholland, vice president of Community Impact for Minnesota Philanthropy Partners.
