Agape Resource & Assistance Center received a $10,000 grant today from the First National Bank of Omaha (FNBO).
The bank announced earlier today the recipients of $1,738,000 in Impact Grants, the largest amount ever awarded by FNBO.
The grants support programs dedicated to workforce development and entrepreneurship; affordable housing and neighborhood revitalization; and adult education, financial literacy and security, according to a press release.
“FNBO recognizes that investments in workforce development, education, affordable housing and financial literacy have returns that far outlast a one-time donation,” said Whitney Baker, director of philanthropy and giving for FNBO. “Through this grant program, our goal is to find community partners working in these areas that not only impact individual lives, but build stronger and more financially successful communities.”
The Agape Resource & Assistance Center in East Plano helps women, moms and their children facing situational homelessness. The organization provides transitional housing and support services in life skills, business/financial matters and more.
