St. Elizabeth Community Hospital recently presented its annual Dignity Health Community grants to four nonprofit organizations.
Sister Pat Manoli, senior director of Mission Integration, presented the grants Dec. 20 to Family Service Agency, Northern Valley Catholic Social Service, Slow Food Shasta Cascade and Tehama Together.
The four projects receiving grant funding included Family Services Agency's counseling services to families at or below poverty level, including a new music therapy program; Northern Valley Catholic Social Service Family Resource Center for nutrition courses; Slow Food Shasta Cascade EBT program for the year-round Farmers Market; and Tehama Together for its 2-1-1 information and community resource line.
The total amount divided among the recipients was $38,000.
The selection committee comprised of St. Elizabeth Advisory Council and community members reviewed eight letters of intent with a total request for $110,480. Five of these requests were invited to submit proposals and the four finalists were selected.
The objectives of the Dignity Health Community Grants program include focusing on unmet health-related needs of the community, primary prevention and addressing underlying causes of health problems, continuum of care, community capacity and collaboration.
