Impact1Hundred Awards $12,000 in 2015


A dinner at The Twisted Olive was the occasion to vote on 2015 awards. Impact1Hundred awarded a total of $12,000 for 6 grants in 2015. Since the first grants were awarded in 2009, Impact1Hundred has given over $120,000.00 to various agency programs.


Congratulations to:

Gateway Support Services – awarded $2,700.00 to purchase items used for the rewards program related to the Life Skills class for residents. Bus passes will be also be purchased and used to encourage client independence by allowing them to attend appointments and classes on their own. Finally, Welcome Packs will be purchased to give new residents items necessary to get started on their own.


Family Living Center – awarded $4,000.00 to purchase microwavable meals and lunch items for residents of the Family Living Center (FLC). Previously, Affinity Medical Center provided frozen meals, deli meat, individual milk cartons, fruit and snack size chips each week for all residents. This service was discontinued in November, 2015. The grant money will be used for meals on an interim basis until a more permanent solution can be found.


Loving Choice Adoption and Parenting Services – awarded $2,000.00 to purchase Comfort Kits and Comfort Cubs for birth mothers. Comfort Kits will be given to all birth mothers and include toothpaste/brushes, lotions and snacks. The items are meant to provide comfort and to ensure basic needs are met. Comfort Cubs will be given to the birth mother at the time of surrender of her infant. The bear approximates the weight of a new-born baby and provides some tangible comfort and is therapeutic for the mother to hold on to as she starts the healing process after making the difficult decision to place her baby in an adoptive home.


Supported Employment – awarded $1,000.00 for the purchase of basic needs items such as soap, shampoo, shaving cream, toothpaste, deodorant and toilet paper. Clients typically have no source of income and are unable to procure the needed resources to insure they are able to pursue competitive employment. Clients who are enrolled in the Supported Employment Program will be able to pursue competitive employment while insuring their basic needs are met.


Family Living Center – awarded $2,000.00 for the purchase of vinyl mattress and box spring beds. Some of the beds currently being used at the FLC remain from when the building was a hotel and are very old and need replaced. Vinyl beds are very durable and can be easily cleaned in between changes in residents.


Family Living Center – awarded $300.00 for the purchase of single ride bus passes for the residents of the FLC. The bus passes will be used by the residents to get to appointments necessary for them in making the move from shelter residents to independently housed individuals.
