The Hawthorn Medical Associates Charitable Fund of the SouthCoast Community Foundation announced today the five recipients for their grants, totaling $25,000. The awards will support programs that directly serve women and children and address child abuse prevention and treatment; economic self-sufficiency; and victims of domestic violence.

Each of the five organizations received $5,000 towards the following:

  • Catholic Social Services was awarded a grant for their H.O.U.S.E. Family Homeless Shelter-Welcome Project which helps reduce the trauma of entering a homeless shelter. Families and Children will be provided basic provisions while they await other entitlement benefits to become active.
  • Child & Family Services was granted support for their Caring Network, allowing greater outreach in the community to aid children who witness or are the victims of violence. (Grant focus: victims of violence)
  • PACE, Inc. was awarded a grant for their Food Bank which addresses food insecurity in the Greater New Bedford area.
  • The Women’s Center’s Keeping Domestic Violence Shelters Safe From COVID-19 program was awarded a grant to offset the unexpected costs to house new survivors in hotels and test them for the virus to limit spread to existing shelter residents.
  • YWCA of Southeastern MA will receive a grant for their Financial Literacy Program for Women to support their educational programming that focuses on self-sufficiency and stability through a strong understanding of budgeting, planning, and debt reduction.

Since 2011, the Hawthorn Medical Associates Charitable Fund has provided grants totaling more than $235,000 to local non-profit organizations, with a focus on child abuse prevention and treatment; economic self-sufficiency; and victims of domestic violence. Hawthorn Medical Associates was founded in 1970 to provide a high level of care for patients in Southeastern Massachusetts while bringing physician specialists and services to the community not available at the time.
