The Genuardi Family Foundation is privileged to partner with many regional organizations whose direct services aid the most vulnerable and support the development of healthy individuals, families and communities.
We proudly present a small sampling of our 2021 grantees:
Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities, founded in 1971, provides tangible services, support, and spiritual guidance to address the basic needs of persons within and beyond the Greater Pottstown area. Their Food Security Programs received funding to improve food access across their region, and for the overall stability of households that rely on food resources distributed through their programs.
Friends Association for Care and Protection of Children provides programs and services that prevent homelessness and promote the independence of families with children in Chester County. Funding will support their general operations, including an emergency shelter, their Housing Stability program, Eviction Prevention Court, and their newest program, NIA House for women and children in Coatesville.
Rolling Harvest Food Rescue is the only modern-day gleaning organization in Bucks County, whose goal is to increase access to donated fresh produce and other healthy foods to area hunger-relief sites that serve the at-risk, food-insecure population by providing local farmers and food producers with free, effective delivery and distribution of their surplus. Funding will help support general operating expenses of the organization.
Family Promise/Interfaith Hospitality Network of Delaware County’s mission is to minister to the needs of low-income, homeless children and their parents by providing temporary housing, meals, transportation, and other physical needs through a network of committed congregations of several faiths throughout Delaware County. Funding will help support general operations, which include case management, rental assistance, a mentoring program, and other positive life skills to help families overcome the stress of being homeless.
Inglis Foundation, founded in 1877, provides residential and community-based services maximizing the independence of adults with severe, complex physical disabilities. Funding will support Inglis Employment Services (IES), which seeks to prepare people with disabilities for competitive employment: jobs paying market compensation in workplaces alongside workers without disabilities.
The Pathway School is a special education school in Montgomery County whose mission is to build academic, social and life skills in students to promote their success and independence. Funding will support their Bridge to Success program. Components of the program include assessment, community-based life skills instruction, job skills and real-life job experience in work settings, skill set attributes and social skills instruction.
