The Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust awarded CSH in Indiana a grant to work with local providers to increase access to supportive housing for the most vulnerable populations. The Trust seeks to help people in need, especially women, children and families; to protect animals and nature; and to enrich community life in the metropolitan areas of Indianapolis and Phoenix.
Nancy McGraw, CSH Chief Development Officer, accepted the award along with Indiana staff members Lori Phillips -Steele (Program Director) and Stephanie Sideman (Program Manager).
With the grant, the Indiana office plans to (1) offer a Dimensions of Quality seminar in Indianapolis, (2) work with providers who are opening new supportive housing developments to strategize around issues such as creative engagement and eviction prevention, (3) and will work with providers and property managers to increase integrated housing in the community. Some of this work will focus primarily on medically vulnerable individuals and families.
