St. Martin's Good Neighbor Grants

The Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields announces 2015 Good Neighbor Grantees

October 1, 2015

Grants were awarded to organizations in the church’s neighboring zip codes (19118, 19119, 19128, 19144 and 19038) and according to the funding priorities of the Parish:

    1.  Services for women, children, and families in need.
    2.  Educational advancement for children, youth, and the unemployed.
    3.  Advocacy that addresses causes, and not only symptoms, of poverty.

After reviewing the applications submitted to the Outreach Committee this year, Good Neighbor Grants ranging from $1,000 to $1,400 were awarded to the following Charitable organizations:

  • Chestnut Hill Meals on Wheels – A community based, non profit organization devoted to meeting the daily nutritional needs of any of our neighbors challenged by illness, disability or age.
  • Dress for Success – Promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
  • Face to Face – Face to Face offers a Dining Room, a nurse managed Health Center, a Washeteria, a Legal Center, a Social Services Center and Children’s Summer Camps and After School programs.
  • Fresh Artists – Arts program serving Philadelphia Public Schools
  • Manna – Food for the medically disabled and homebound
  • Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network – Seeks to end family homelessness in Philadelphia by mobilizing congregational volunteers and community resources to meet neighbors’ emergency needs (shelter, food, and clothing); and by providing continued guidance and support to achieve self-sufficiency in affordable housing.
  • Servant Year – Episcopal Service Corp here in Philadelphia

Congratulations to all our grantees. We look forward to watching you continue to transform the lives of the people in our community.
