Growth Works Family Assessment Support & Education (FASE) received a $10,000 grant from the Consumers Energy Foundation supporting their Community Closet program. This grant will connect individuals and families with essential items to address their basic needs and we expect to see a quantifiable impact on their overall lifestyle.
“The Consumers Energy Foundation is committed to removing the barriers keeping our neighbors from accessing basic needs. That’s why we are proud to support organizations like Growth Works Family Assessment Support & Education and their efforts to connect Wayne County residents with the resources they need,” said Carolyn Bloodworth, secretary/treasurer of the Consumers Energy Foundation.
As a leading social service provider serving Wayne County residents, our mission is to restore hope, embrace change and improve the lives of the clients we serve. We recognize that when individuals and families struggle to meet their basic needs, issues of substance use, domestic violence and juvenile justice tend to increase. The Community Closet provides essential resources including food, household items, and clothing. By addressing these needs, we believe we will shift their long-term outcomes, as well as those for generations to come. This grant is an opportunity to partner with the Consumers Energy Foundation and further their mission of caring for people, our planet and Michigan’s prosperity.
