Putting Compassion Into Action…
Compassion Advocacy Network, Inc. got a financial boost because of a special grant from the Hampton Roads Community Foundation (H.R.C.F.). The organization awarded $3,000 to C.A.N. to provide operating support to assist them with stabilization and recovery due to the loss of income related to the COVID-19 pandemic. C.A.N. utilized those funds to shore up its Compassion on the Move Bus program, which delivers food and other personal care items to isolated seniors throughout Hampton Roads.
The City of Norfolk, Virginia Office of Budget and Strategic Planning awarded a $15,000 Community Development Block Grant to Compassion Advocacy Network, Inc. Community Development Block Grant (C.D.B.G.) funds are received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (H.U.D.) annually to revitalize neighborhoods, expand affordable housing and economic opportunities, or improve community facilities and services, which benefit low and moderate-income persons throughout the United States.
C.D.B.G. provides a flexible funding source to develop viable urban communities by providing decent, affordable housing, creating suitable living environments, and expanding economic opportunities for low and moderate-income persons. The city, with the participation of local citizens, allocate resources toward projects that qualify as meeting one or more of the following three broad national objectives set by Congress:
- Aid to prevent or eliminate slums and blight
- Benefit low and moderate-income persons
- Meet other community development needs in an urgent situation
Compassion Advocacy Networks’ goal is to connect seniors in need with people who care about seniors and their healthcare. We offer this educational program to seniors who live in income-based housing in the City of Norfolk, Virginia. Seniors will learn how to use their smartphone to shop online effectively, combat food insecurity, and utilize video chat to combat isolationism and stay safe COVID 19 pandemic or any other future public health outbreak. Using our network, we will seek out three additional income-based locations to expand our CAN Help! Program in Norfolk from servicing three (3) senior housing facilities and their residents to six (6) senior housing ‘facilities and their residents and staff. Isolated Seniors are the primary target we have been working with since 2003.
