UNITED WAY HAS COMMUNITY GRANTS AVAILABLE

Oct. 21, 2001 – United Way of St. Thomas-St. John has $19,500 available in its Venture Grant program for unmet or emerging needs of youth in crisis within the St. Thomas and St. John communities.
Applications are currently being accepted from social service community agencies to address issues affecting youth in crisis, utilizing innovative strategies.
Proposals being sought are those geared to issues affecting the success of our youth, said executive director Thyra Hammond in a United Way release. She cited as examples teen violence, school violence, child abuse, substance abuse, suicide, and services for exceptional children and learning disabled.
Venture grants are not for support of established programs or for start-up funding for new agencies, said the release. Encouraged to apply are community organizations, in existence for at least two years, which wish to approach new populations or with programs expanding into new areas.
Grant applications and letters of intent are available at the United Way office, located on Main Street, upstairs of Mr. Tablecloth. Completed applications must be received in the office by Nov. 15, 2001.
For more information, call 774-3185.
