LAWRENCE — Chief Executive Officer Carina Pappalardo is pleased to share that the The Psychological Center, Inc. and the Daybreak Shelter received a $5,000 grant from the TD Bank Charitable Foundation.
The grant will support existing stabilization and housing programs at the Daybreak Shelter, with a goal of expanding housing-specific case management efforts and stabilization efforts.
Programs at the shelter use evidence-based approaches to help stabilize guests and then assist them in their search for housing. Grant funds will facilitate the expansion of those programs, as well as longer shelter stays for residents who have trouble finding housing immediately.
“As people throughout the region face a challenging housing market and high rents, these grant funds will enable us to expand our housing and stabilization programs at the Daybreak Shelter, and will help countless people who just need a chance to get their feet back under themselves and find good housing options again,” said CEO Pappalardo. “We are grateful for this support, and will put these funds to work as we help our guests find housing of their own.”
