Thank you for helping decide where this year’s WGF Grant will have the highest impact!
Holy Cross Ministries
Holy Cross Ministries will improve outcomes for at-risk women and children in Park City by doubling the reach of the evidence-based Parents as Teachers program, increasing the number of women and children served from 35 to 70. This home-visiting program promotes optimal early development for children aged 0-3.
The Peace House Community Campus will address all aspects of domestic violence in a single, secure, highly accessible location. A grant would symbolically fund the campus's first Transitional Housing unit, providing a safe home where Summit County women and children can rebuild their lives after domestic abuse.
Youth Sports Alliance
Youth Sports Alliance will provide healthy, productive sports and activities to kids by expanding the ACTiV8 program at Ecker Hill Middle School and introducing it to Treasure Mountain Junior High, and expanding the Get Out & Play program while introducing it to both North Summit and South Summit elementary schools.
WGF Grant Finalist voting has closed for 2017. The grantee will be announced at the July 10 WGF Grant Celebration event (see above for event link). Thanks to everyone who voted!
