Grants create healthier communities

On behalf of MAPP of the Southern Kenai Peninsula (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership), I would like to thank Homer Foundation for a grant received in 2012 to assist with travel to Port Graham and Nanwalek to obtain input for culturally sensitive language in some of our materials. Homer Air was generous in extending  these travel vouchers to bring residents to Homer last week to participate in a Green Dot training, further extending the reach of those grant dollars.   

We are grateful for the opportunity to participate in trainings with our neighbors across the bay, as we collectively work to build healthy relationships and eliminate violence in our communities. We appreciate the generosity of both the Homer Foundation and Homer Air on these projects.
