$5,000 Grant Supports St. Catherine’s Food & Housing Insecurity Initiatives

ALBANY, N.Y. – Recently, St. Catherine’s Center for Children was awarded a $5,000 grant – by the Make Sense Foundation – to support the agency’s Pathways to Health program. This grant is presented to nonprofit organizations whose mission aligns with the mission of MSF: to help children and women in need. These funds allow for the continuation of St. Catherine’s direct outreach and engagement in the community, including the Pathways to Health “Care-A-Van,” a mobile unit that allows the team to set up on the street, in parking lots and anywhere else that is needed to meet with individuals and families in crisis. Additionally, this grant sustains the Care-A-Van’s on-the-spot healthcare resources, which includes access to telehealth and telemedicine benefits, appointment scheduling, and transportation, as well as providing food, household essentials, and hygiene supplies.
