This post is part of a series where we will periodically share news from our partners and grantees, as well as local media. Below please find links to articles featuring activities of the Foundation Trust in recent months.
The COVID-19 pandemic changed the landscape of programs the Foundation Trust typically supports during the summer months, including many programs for at-risk youth. In spite of the challenges, the Foundation Trust was able to continue making impactful contributions to the community through targeted giving and the development and dissemination of resources on various facets of complex trauma. Click the links below for a snapshot of some of our activities over the last few months.
