The Trinity Health Foundation held an awards luncheon on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at Cherokee Country Club for Phase I Grant Award winners. Allies for Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) of Anderson County representatives were on hand to accept their award, meet Foundation Board members and learn about the grant process.
“We are thrilled to be selected for this project,” said Stephanie Strutner, Executive Director of ASAP of Anderson County, “we are eager to engage in planning with our community partners for what could be a very positive program for adolescents in our community.”
According to the Trinity Health Foundation, ASAP was one of 16 organizations selected to receive a Phase I award of the 120 applicants. The initial award will allow for three months of planning and each organization will submit a Phase II proposal. Five will be awarded Phase II grants up to $150,000 to support their projects. The Trinity Health Foundation supports community projects which improve the physical, emotional and spiritual health of the community.
ASAP plans to collaborate with Juvenile Court, as well as several other departments and agencies, in order to plan for an effective and appropriate juvenile drug court program.
