Announcing our Latest Grants to End Homelessness: January 2016

by Janice Elliott January 20, 2016

We’re honored to support the work of our grantee partners who are committed to long-term solutions to prevent and end homelessness in America. The following grants were approved by the Melville Board at our December 2015 meeting.

You’ll see a mix of organizations located in our home state of Connecticut as well those working nationally.

Our ultimate goal is straightforward—creating communities where everyone has a place to call home. You can learn more about our approach here and explore all of our grantmaking here.
