KINGSTON, QUINCY, BROCKTON, TAUNTON, FALL RIVER, NEW BEDFORD, MA ISSUED DECEMBER 18, 2023
NeighborWorks® Housing Solutions (NHS), the leading housing service provider in southern Massachusetts, has received a grant from the CVS Health Foundation in the amount of $25,000 as part of its 2023 Hometown Fund, which supports the communities the company’s headquarters call home.
The grant was given to NHS as an unrestricted donation and will be applied to area of greatest need or general operating expenses. Unrestricted grants are not as common but are incredibly important to nonprofits and provide flexibility to apply funding where it is needed most. In addition, the gift will enhance resident well-being through formal partnerships for evidence-based supportive services.
“When people have access to consistent health care and are equipped with the supporting services like affordable housing and healthy food, they are better positioned to improve their health,” said Sheryl Burke, senior vice president of corporate social responsibility and chief sustainability officer with CVS Health. “Our Hometown Fund grantees this year serve as example of the ongoing work that is the focus of our philanthropic programs.”
“We are grateful to the CVS Health Foundation for their support of the many services and resources we provide, including housing and supportive services, which ultimately promote health and well-being and ensure high quality tenant services and supports,” said Robert Corley, CEO of NeighborWorks Housing Solutions.
The funds received by NHS are part of $2 million in grants from the CVS Health Foundation awarded to nonprofits throughout Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts to help bolster organizations working toward improving health outcomes and creating a healthier, more equitable future for all.
