The St. Francis Fund of Felician Services Committee recently reviewed a variety of grant applications from across the Felician Sponsored Ministries. The awards this cycle include innovative programs that support the needs of the time through establishing community closets, training people in need who need jobs in the workforce, addressing trauma in children and adolescents, increasing safety for the most vulnerable people, and much more.
Led by the grant criteria, the committee spent thoughtful and deliberate time as individuals and as a group in recommending grant applications to award. Mindy Nora, St. Francis Fund Committee Member and Felician Services Board Member, stated, “one of the privileges of serving on the committee is the opportunity to review so many creative and forward thinking proposals to further the reach of the Felician mission to the people it serves.” Elizabeth Sobczyk, St. Francis Fund Committee Member, feels “it was an honor to review such thoughtful applications that will positively impact the lives of so many individuals being served by Felician Sponsored Ministries.”
The St. Francis Fund Committee looks forward to the fruits these programs will yield. The next St. Francis Fund cycle will open Friday, January 6th, 2023 and close Friday, March 3rd, 2023. For more information on the St. Francis Fund and the components of the application, please click here.
