The Community Health Network Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that raises financial support for Community Health Network patients, caregivers and Central Indiana communities, has been awarded a Grief Reach Grant from the New York Life Foundation. Community’s foundation was chosen from among 60 national bereavement providers to benefit from the grant and one of only five organizations to receive $100,000. The funding is part of a national effort to expand grief support services to diverse and disadvantaged youth in communities not served by existing programs.
The Grief Reach Grant from the New York Life Foundation will assist Community Health Network Foundation in its mission to provide grief counseling and grief programs for 16,000 children, ages 5 to 18, who have lost a loved one during childhood. The funds will be channeled to the network’s bereavement services, supported by Community Home Health and Community Behavioral Health. Full story >>
