In a second wave of grants designed to help area organizations deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, K21 again joined with the Kosciusko County Community Foundation, The United Way of Kosciusko County, and Zimmer-Biomet Foundation to proactively provide funding to shelter and residential service programs.  

A total of $25,000 will be given to All Things New, Beaman Home, Bowen Center group homes, Cardinal Services group homes, Fellowship Missions, Rose Garden Recovery Community, and Serenity House. Residents of these facilities are now sheltering in place 24/7, which is causing an increase in operational expenses including food, staffing, and utilities, as well as costs for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).  

 K21 is committed to ongoing monitoring of the ever-evolving situation and will continue to collaborate with other community funders to help our community during this time of crisis.
