The Helen and Dave Gast Endowment, a component fund of the Kosciusko County Community Foundation, recently awarded a $14,000 grant to the Kosciusko County Shelter for Abuse in support of its Help Center program.
The Help Center social worker assists local individuals and families who need help from the Good Samaritan Fund, The KC Riley Kids Fund and other financial assistance funds.
“The Help Center social worker connects people who are in a medical crisis with financial resources they need,” said Community Foundation Executive Director Suzie Light. “Many community members have supported these help funds, and now a grant from the Helen and Dave Gast Endowment will ensure that families continue to access these funds with the caring guidance of a social worker.”
