HealthSpark launches Montco safety net initiative

HealthSpark Foundation is pleased to launch its new Safety Net Resiliency Initiative. Over the next 10 years, the Resiliency Initiative aims to improve the ability of Montgomery County’s health and human services safety net system – and the organizations that contribute to and support the system – to weather uncertainty and meet the needs of people across the county.

HealthSpark is now accepting applications from direct service and advocacy organizations to participate in a collaborative and facilitated 6-month process to design longer-term projects the initiative will support. Each participating organization will receive a $6,000 stipend in recognition of the time they will invest in this work. The deadline to apply to participate is January 22, 2018.

The foundation is also hosting two information sessions on the initiative, participation requirements, eligibility criteria and how to apply. Both sessions will be held in the Walton Room at the Community Partners Center at 2506 North Broad Street in Colmar:

• Thursday, January 4; 9:00 – 11:00am
• Monday, January 8; 3:00 – 5:00pm

Visit the foundation’s website for full details and to register for one of the information sessions.
