Grantee Spotlight๐Ÿ’ก Direct Giving Lab

LCCF is excited to support the work of Direct Giving Lab which provides unrestricted cash transfers to households and measures the results on financial, health and educational outcomes.

One participant, Kristi, who is a single mother with a teenage daughter was able to utilize this program until she was able to secure a full-time job with health benefits. During the time, Kristi was able to open a savings account and save over $800 for future, unplanned expenses. She is relieved to feel she is not one paycheck away from total distracter!

We will be sharing more about Direct Giving Lab in our next newsletter ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒ

Today is the start of #HispanicHeritageMonth! It is an intentional time to celebrate and give gratitude to Hispanic and Latinx people and culture ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ˜

There is so much happening this month in Lake County to highlight the incredible people, rich culture and lasting heritage that has long been here. And while we do want to celebrate all of this, it is also important that we continue to support and show up for the Hispanic and Latinx community throughout the rest of the year ๐Ÿ’™

๐Ÿ”ฆGrantee Spotlight: Grandparent and Kins Raising Children-Lake County, NFP ๐ŸŒŸ

โ€œFunding from LCCF was pivotal for Grandparent and Kins Raising Children as it allowed us to further increase our development of our youth and caregivers. Our youth program S.T.A.R โ€œSuccess through Academics and Recreationโ€ was able to receive new learning materials and a recreation field trip. The families were able to receive financial literacy training and staffs and caregivers were able to enroll in professional development. GKRCLC were able to provide monthly resources to families that were in need."

Thank you, Grandparent and Kins Raising Children-Lake County, NFP for your work in Lake County!!
