Grant to aid area families
A $1,000 grant will provide emergency financial assistance to Peabody-area families needing help paying rent, utilities, or other bills necessary to ensure safe environments for their children.
The grant from Peabody Community Foundation to Families and Communities Together of Marion County will be administered by FACT’s Family Assistance Network.
According to FACT executive director Terry Bebermeyer, the network in the past has helped relocate families out of rodent-infested dwellings, assisted families with sick children, and helped families though fires and flood as well as COVID-19.
