John’s Island Foundation awards Indian River Habitat 0K home repair grant

VERO BEACH — Serving the county’s most vulnerable populations, John’s Island Foundation awarded Indian River Habitat for Humanity’s home repair program a $100,000 grant.

The John’s Island Foundation provides grant funding for capital needs to nonprofit agencies that serve residents in Indian River County. Agencies eligible for funding serve people in need and have programs directed toward meeting needs or assisting with issues related to food, shelter, disabilities, health, age, abuse or children’s education.

Having served 91 families this year alone, Habitat is in “active repair season.” Indian River Habitat’s Strategic Plan details doubling the production of new homes and serving 500 families through the critical repair program within the next five years — a goal they are well on their way to reaching.
