We are so excited to announce that we have received a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County that will allow us to create a full-time, paid Support Services Internship. The intern will be mentored by both our Life Skills Coach and our Social-Emotional Learning Specialist, to help us build capacity to provide both trauma-induced and ongoing mental health supports for students and families. This grant is made possible through the Foundation's visionary new Resilient Community Mental Health grant program. This is the third grant we have received from the Community Foundation since the start of the pandemic. They previously supported our efforts to assist food insecure families through their Rapid Response Grant, and our expansion of technology for virtual learning through their LEARN Fund. We are honored to have our heart-mind-voice work in the age of COVID recognized by the Community Foundation, and we are inspired by all of the generous and innovative ways they are stepping up to address community need in these unprecedented times.
