The Hancock County Community Foundation and the Rotary Club of Greenfield recently awarded Families First Inc. a $1,250 grant. HCCF matched dollar for dollar the money raised by the Rotary Club of Greenfield at their Steak‘n Bake’n Raffle last fall. Families First Inc.’s mission is to create healthier communities by strengthening families and individuals through life challenges and changes. These challenges can vary from drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, family and marital problems, parenting challenges, financial struggles, mental disorders, and problems associated with aging can present themselves to a family. In Hancock County, Families First offers substance abuse, domestic violence, and individual and family counseling programs.
The grant dollars awarded will help fund programming services for Families First Indiana, Inc. by providing therapeutic counseling sessions, boosting motivation and client behaviors and ultimately improving quality of life for families throughout the surrounding areas. This program is essential to our community because a happy and healthy county starts with happy and healthy families.
HCCF works with caring individuals, families, and organizations to create or grow existing permanent funds called endowments. These funds generate income that is distributed in the form of grants and scholarships to enrich and enhance life in Hancock County, as well as support the donor’s favorite charitable causes, both at home and afar forever. HCCF has granted over $8.7 million since its inception in 1992.
