The check, which was awarded to the Friends Association for Care and Protection of Children, was disbursed as part of appropriated funding for 2015 during the commissioners’ Sunshine Meeting. The Friends Association is one of the county’s key partners in its Decade to Doorways initiative, a drive to prevent and end homelessness in the county within 10 years.

Jack Luke, the director of development for Friends Association, and Brian Boreman, a board member, accepted the check from the commissioners.

“This contribution of $15,000 will support three key parts of Friends Association’s work to stabilize the lives of homeless, or near homeless families,” said Luke. “Our emergency family shelter, our homeless prevention program and our newest outreach case management program will all receive funds, and we thank the commissioners for their significant donation.”
