Grant will provide emergency assistance to families

A $1,000 Peabody Community Foundation grant to Families and Communities Together, Inc. of Marion County will provide emergency financial assistance to Peabody-area families.

FACT’s Family Financial Assistance Network, has helped relocate families out of rodent-infested dwellings, helped sustain families with sick children, and assisted with rent, utilities, and services necessary for the safety and well-being of children.

It has helped families through catastrophic events such as fires and floods, defrayed the cost of expensive prescriptions for themselves or their children, and helped families who have exhausted their financial means.

FACT works to help families and children succeed in all areas of their lives.

FACT partners with churches, agencies, and schools to provide services including early childhood programs, substance abuse prevention programs, emergency financial aid, and resource and referral services.
