Impact1Hundred Awards $22,000 in 2013


The women of Impact1Hundred recently met at Basil Asian Bistro to vote on their 2013 awards. Impact1Hundred awarded a total of $22,000 for 6 grants in 2013. Since the first grants were awarded in 2009, Impact1Hundred has given almost $100,000.00 to the programs of Community Services of Stark County.


Congratulations to Gateway Support Services – awarded $3,000.00. The funds will be used for various programs to enhance the Life Skills class for residents. Bus passes will be purchased and used to encourage client independence by allowing them to attend appointments and classes on their own.


Congratulations to Family Living Center – awarded $4,000.00. Funds will be used to purchase one ride bus passes for residents of the homeless shelter. Residents use the tickets for doctor appointments, employment and housing searches as well as other types of benefit appointments.


Congratulations to Alliance Rape Crisis Program – awarded $600.00. Funds will be used to purchase educational and promotional materials. This would include packets for handing out materials to those who are at higher risk for assault or human trafficking. Items for health fairs and educational seminars on preventing violence, what to do if you or someone you know has been assaulted, items for safety (whistles with the rape crisis number imprinted on it), and other items with the program name and rape crisis line number imprinted on them. The idea is to have items/materials that can be handy to find with the crisis number to contact if someone needs help.


Congratulations to Canton Facilities – awarded $3,900.00 for building security.


Funds will be used to control future access to the Canton site building. Plans are to designate one entrance as the employee entrance. It is our intention to install a keypad entry system at this door. With the increase in armed violence we are attempting to be proactive in securing our facility. Additionally, we see a large number of mentally ill patients who, without medication, can be prone to all sorts of unpredictable behavior. Finally, we have an on-site pharmacy stocked with various forms of psychotropic drugs. These drugs are a very attractive theft target.


Congratulations to Youth & Young Adult Services – awarded $9,200.00 for various programs. Funds will be used to purchase bus passes for educational and vocational use and to pay for driver’s education courses and to cover costs of licenses or state IDs. Pay for birth certificates necessary for housing program applications. Purchase ‘cooking and cleaning basics’ packages. Purchase YMCA memberships for clients when identified as a treatment plan.


Congratulations to Adult CPST – awarded $1,300.00. The program provides psychiatric case management to those severely mentally ill individuals who would be unable to function independently in the community without symptom monitoring and supportive intervention. Many of the clients have hygiene issues and limited income; they need financial assistance to purchase basic needs such as soap, shampoo, feminine hygiene products, toilet paper, etc. Additionally, basic cleaning products are needed to insure that these clients are able to pass inspections from various agencies such ICAN and SMHA. Food stamps do not cover these items which further heightens the need.
