Camp Haven receives their fifth grant from the Grand Harbor Community Outreach Philanthropy Committee. After an in-depth interview process, Camp Haven received a $14,000 grant to provide professional counseling for clients in the Pathways to a Purposeful Life Program.
“We are pleased to partner with Camp Haven to help homeless men regain financial independence and self esteem through a structured program,” said Dale Jacobs, Grand Harbor Community Outreach Program, Inc. vice president.
Grand Harbor Community Outreach is dedicated to addressing the unmet needs of groups and individuals in Indian River County. The nonprofit commits 100 percent of member donations to support the disadvantaged of Indian River County.
The philanthropy committee works with community partners to ensure they are effective, impactful and of high quality. Since 2001, Grand Harbor, a philanthropic community, has raised and distributed nearly $3.5 million dollars into the community to help in the areas of education, health, jobs and human services in Indian River County.
Agencies are evaluated based on the quality of their management/leader team and measurable impact on their client base, values, and efficiency in delivering services. Four times members of the philanthropy team have evaluated Camp Haven, and they have each concluded Camp Haven was worthy of continued financial support.
“If it were not for the generosity of donors like Grand Harbor, local nonprofits like ours would not be able to provide life-changing services. Our residents are encouraged as they restore themselves … making struggles into successes,” said Lalita Janke, Camp Haven executive director.
