FRAMINGHAM The MutualOne Charitable Foundation has announced a $7,000 grant to support the Local Initiative for Family Empowerment (LIFE) program at Family Promise MetroWest.
The LIFE program is a homelessness prevention program supporting families with children who are not yet homeless, but are at risk of eviction, said Executive Director Sue Crossley.
“Early intervention is the best way to combat homelessness,” said Chair of the Foundation Mark Haranas. “The LIFE program provides subsidies to pay rent in arrears and advocacy with the landlord. We are glad to offer our support.”
The $7,000 grant to Family Promise Metrowest was among awards totaling $63,960 in the MutualOne Charitable 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 $4.8 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.
