The Family & Nursing Care Foundation in Silver Spring, Md., a fund of the Community Foundation for Montgomery County, has awarded $30,000 in cash grants to two local nonprofit organizations that provide low-income aging adults with the dedicated home care support they need to remain in the safety and comfort of their own homes, according to a news release.
The foundation awarded $20,000 to Home Care Partners, a non-profit home care agency that provides a wide range of supportive services for elderly, chronically ill and disabled residents in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. A $10,000 grant was awarded to Community Ministries of Rockville, Md., an interfaith non-profit organization that provides services to the elderly and homeless, emergency assistance to families and healthcare for uninsured adults in the community.
This is the fifth consecutive year that weve been able to make awards of this size to these wonderful local charities, Sandy Kursban, founder of Family & Nursing Care, an area provider of home care services, and the Family & Nursing Care Foundation, said in the release. These organizations are doing an amazing job of extending a helping hand to some of the most vulnerable members of our community, and its a privilege to financially support their missions once again this year.
