Woods Charitable Fund Inc., a private grant-making foundation, announced grants to 12 groups totaling $211, 500.
“In light of recent incidences of families leaving teenage children at Nebraska hospitals under the state’s Safe Haven Law, second-year support for Families Inspiring Families may have special significance, ” said Pam Baker, the fund’s executive director, in a press release.
“Families Inspiring Families is a group that provides peer support and advocacy for families whose children have emotional, behavioral and/or mental health issues. FIF can be a resource to help families in need before they reach that point of desperation resulting in abandoning a child.”
