Matching Grant Within Reach

Posted by on March 5, 2019

With one day left, Steven’s Hope is within a few hundred dollars of receiving a matching grant of $38,000.  As of March 5, donations and commitments of $37,810 have been received.  That leaves less than $200 to be raised to get the full grant from a local grantor.

“We are so close,” says Steven’s Hope Development Director, Amanda Behnke. “All it takes is just a couple of people to step up before the end of the day on Tuesday.”

The grant is designated to help fund the Housing For Hope Project which provides temporary housing to families whose children are getting treatment at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. There are four apartments that are made available to families referred by hospital social workers from LLUCH. Each year between 16 and 24 families stay in the apartments while their children receive chemotherapy, proton radiation, transplant surgery or other life-threatening illnesses.
