Norma F. Pfriem Foundation Gives $25,000 to Beth-El Center
The Beth-El Center in Milford has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Norma F. Pfriem Foundation. The grant will support the Center's efforts to transition its residents to permanent housing.
Through its shelter, soup kitchen and case management, the Beth-El Center cares for and responds to the needs of the hungry and homeless in the greater Milford community.
"We are honored to receive this generous and thoughtful grant which will have a huge impact on our residents' shift to self-sufficiency," says Toni Dolan, Beth-El Center Executive Director. "When residents are moving out of the shelter to their own apartment, many times they leave with only what they arrived with. This funding will allow us to provide the items necessary for them to begin again in a new home."
The grant will be used to purchase new household items such as microwaves and toaster ovens, pots and pans, dishes and silverware, bedding and bath linens and other domestic necessities needed for those transitioning to live independently.
According to Attorney Matthew B. Woods, Norma F. Pfriem Foundation Trustee, "We are pleased to provide Beth-El Center with this funding for outplacement assistance to shelter residents who will be moving into their own permanent housing."
