Healthy Youth and Healthy Senior Grants

Healthy Youth and Healthy Senior Grants

Grants made for 2021 from Healthy Youth Healthy Seniors Fund at Canton Community Foundation.
 
In 2000, as a result of a national tobacco settlement, CCF was among 65 community foundations in Michigan to receive an allocation of funds to aid community efforts that support healthy youth and healthy seniors.
Past grants include support for conflict resolution and anti-bullying for youth, exercise for seniors, grief counseling, and work skills development for special needs youth.
 
This year $12,000 is granted out to the following programs:-
 
1. $5000 New Hope Center for Grief Support.
New Hope Center for Grief, $5,000 This grant would support a
summer camp for kids grieving the death of a parent, sibling,
family member or friend. The grant would help expand
capacity for this camp to be able to support 75 grieving
children.
 
2. $3500 First Step
This grant would enable First Step to install a security alarm
and camera system for the First Step Plymouth office. This
grant would support infrastructure investment for the First
Step Plymouth office, as perpetrators of domestic violence or
sexual assault can sometimes be dangerous and threatening.
 
3. $3500 Plymouth YMCA
This grant would provide aid, allowing 50 children to attend 1
week of Day Camp and support families as they return to
work. As an impact of COVID-19 more families are requesting
financial assistance due to reduced or lost income throughout
the past year.
