The York Street Project
Established in 1989, the York Street Project provides housing, education, childhood development, counseling and life-skills training to more than 300 economically-disadvantaged women and children each year. The mission of the York Street Project is to break the cycle of poverty by weaving innovative programs that shelter, feed, educate and promote healing and independence for women and children in need. Funding Corporation employees support the York Street Project through volunteerism, food drives, tutoring, mentoring, corporate sponsorship and special events.
The Funding Corporation encourages employees to volunteer their time and share their talents to help those less fortunate and to enhance the quality of life in their local communities. In recognition of these efforts, the Funding Corporation has created an Annual Volunteer Service Award, which acknowledges employees who go above and beyond to enhance the quality of life for others. The Funding Corporation makes a $500.00 donation to the 501(c)(3) organization selected by the recipient of the Award.
