2014 Grant Award – Steinbach Community Outreach

Irene Kroeker from Steinbach Community Outreach receives a $2,000 grant from The Chrysalis Fund presented by Shannon Kehler.  Steinbach Community Outreach (SCO) works to assist people in Steinbach that are struggling to meet basic needs, focusing their energy on those that are homeless or at risk of being homeless.  In their grant application SCO stated that they “assist approximately 200 people per year that are homeless, and approximately 75 people per month that reach out to us by connecting with our volunteers in our Outreach room”.  The grant funding assisted SCO to provide a nutritious snack for pre-school children ages 2-4.
