Ecclesiastical Insurance Office plc is excited to announce that FAIM is one of the recipients of their 2020 Community Impact Grant.
Community Impact Grants are provided to registered charitable organizations across Canada for specific projects designed to help vulnerable and under-represented people who suffer from poverty, homelessness, abuse or other life crises.
“Ecclesiastical is proud to protect those who enrich the lives of others and equally proud to give back to the diverse communities we serve across the country. We’re delighted to announce the recipients of our 2020 Community Impact Grant, which we award under the auspices of our charitable trust owner, Allchurches Trust Ltd,” said President of Ecclesiastical Insurance, David Huebel.
“We are very happy to support FAIM in providing programming for adults with disabilities that will provide them the opportunity to use new machinery and master skills relevant to applying for employment and to ultimately help them achieve financial autonomy and decision-making skills, in order to lead independent lives.”
At a time like this, during a global pandemic, this is very appreciative.
“We are very grateful for the support of Ecclesiastical, especially in a year that has been so trying for so many. We will now be able to offer the people we support more options for employment training and experience, so that they can keep relevant in this ever-changing job market,” said Fundraising and Communications Coordinator for FAIM, Jessica Koch.
Ecclesiastical’s goal is to support initiatives that make a positive and sustainable impact on their communities and are proud that the 2020 grant-supported programs continue that trend. Projects include: a program that transforms vacant homes into affordable rental housing for people who are homeless; literacy support programs for children, youth and adults; counselling sessions for single parents; essential, responsive and empowering services for people who have experienced the impact of violence against women; social and recreational programs for older adults; programs to reduce food insecurity; and support services for people with developmental disabilities.
