INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — The Homeless Family Center (HFC) announces the establishment of a permanent endowment fund with the Indian River Community Foundation. The initial funding of the endowment was donated by a generous local donor who wishes to remain anonymous.
“As we approach our 25th year of helping homeless families on the Treasure Coast, we are so grateful for this major investment in our future,” said Mary Ellen Maguire, MSW, executive director of the Homeless Family Center. She added that the donor’s decision to give this significant gift was based on HFC’s 25-year history of helping the homeless, the present number of loyal HFC donors and volunteers, and the HFC Board’s ability to lead the organization into the future.
According to Jeffery Pickering, CEO, Indian River Community Foundation, a non-profit endowment fund gives donors the opportunity to invest in the future of their heartfelt causes.
Donations to the Homeless Family Center Endowment Fund can be made through Homeless Family Center or through the Indian River Community Foundation.
The Homeless Family Center provides basic care for homeless families including shelter and food, and more importantly, HFC provides opportunities for further education and job training to help homeless families earn a living wage and become self-sufficient.
