Delta Community Credit Union recently presented $7,500 to two charities that support homeless teen mothers and uninsured patients in several Georgia counties.
“These organizations provide valuable support to people who are working hard to maintain stable homes, as well as their families’ physical health,” Delta Community Credit Union CEO Hank Halter told the Marietta Daily Journal. “We’re proud to support their efforts.”
Delta Community awarded a $2,500 grant to Healing Bridge Clinic to help the organization provide free health care to uninsured and under-insured people living in Fayette, Coweta and South Fulton counties. Health Bridge offers weekly clinics where doctors, nurses and other medical volunteers treat patients. The organization also helps people connect with legal professionals who provide information bout tenants’ rights.
Delta Community awarded a $5,000 donation to House of Dawn to fund its Parent Economic Stability initiative. House of Dawn provides stable housing, educational help, life skills and other resources to homeless teenagers who are pregnant or who already have children. The facility is open to teens throughout the Southeast, but primarily serves Clayton County where the rate of teen pregnancy is among the highest in Georgia, according to the Marietta Daily Journal.
These two grants were the last of 22 awarded from the 2018 Delta Community Philanthropic Fund.
