FRAMINGHAM – The MutualOne Charitable Foundation has awarded $5,000 to Bethany Hill Place, a living and learning community that combines affordable housing with a range of programs and activities to help families reach their full potential.
The grant will support the Power of Parenting program designed to help residents gain skills and knowledge to increase their parenting skills and promote the healthy well-being of their children.
“Many people lack the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively parent their children,” said Steven M. Sousa, executive vice president and chief operating officer at MutualOne Bank and a Foundation trustee. “Our donation will support a program to help strengthen family relationships.”
The grant to the Bethany Hill Place was among awards totaling $38,000 in the Foundation’s most recent round of funding.
Established in 1998 as the philanthropic arm of MutualOne Bank, the MutualOne Charitable Foundation has since donated over $4.5 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enrich the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.
MutualOne Bank, which operates under an 1889 state charter, has full-service offices at 828 Concord Street and One Lincoln Street in Framingham and at 49 Main Street in Natick, a Commercial Loan Center at 160 Cochituate Road in Framingham, and a Residential Loan Center at 49 Main Street in Natick.
