The Bedford Community Health Foundation has completed their fall grant cycle, with $57,000 in grants. Funds were awarded to 9 local non-profits who provide health care or health-related services to Bedford residents. This makes a total of $200,000 invested back into the community this year.
According to Executive Director, Denny Huff, “It’s not just about awarding grants funding; it’s about teamwork that enables our community partners to create lasting changes where they are needed most. We know that health and wellness begin with community, and that is our mission.”
Grant recipients include CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), Centra College of Nursing , Bedford Domestic Violence Coalition, Food for Kids, Lutheran Family Services of VA, Lake Christian Ministries, SML Good Neighbors, Sedalia Center, and the Roanoke Rescue Mission.
