MORRIS COUNTY — Morris Habitat for Humanity recently received a grant of $10,000 from Provident Bank Foundation to help fund its Neighborhood Revitalization/Aging in Place program. This important program helps low income home owner families maintain their homes. Projects have included home repairs and weatherization, construction projects, and community park renovations.
Funding from The Provident Bank Foundation will support repairs to improve the accessibility, safety, and energy efficiency of low income seniors’ homes. Living in unsafe and unhealthy homes can mean emotional and financial devastation, and a simple modification like a smoke detector or hand rail can enable seniors to maintain their financial stability and independence while living safely in the home and community of their choice.
“This generous gift from the Provident Bank Foundation will help families stay in their homes by supporting our Neighborhood Revitalization and Aging in Place programs,” said Morris Habitat for Humanity CEO, Blair Schleicher Bravo. “Provident Bank Foundation’s long time support of Morris Habitat for Humanity helps us further our commitment to providing decent, safe and affordable housing for people in the community.”
The Provident Bank Foundation was established in 2003 by Provident Bank to enhance the quality of life in the region through support of not-for-profit groups, institutions, schools and other 501(c)(3) organizations that provide services in communities served by the Bank. Since inception, the Foundation has granted more than $24 million to not-for-profit organizations and institutions working toward stronger communities.
