Local nonprofits receive $20,000 grants to benefit underserved communities
PHOENIX - Vitalyst Health Foundation is giving local nonprofits and coalitions that are focused on the health and wellness of Arizonans $20,000 each to help support their causes.
Nine Arizona nonprofits have been provided $20,000 in grants to help serve underserved communities. The Arizona Center for African American Resources, will use the money to develop a plan to address the long-standing disparities in the Black community involving the Arizona Department of Child Safety.
Community advocate Matthew Stewart says he wants decision makers to acknowledge the disparity. He tells ABC15 he’s hoping for a “commitment to listen and to hear from families who are over represented.”
