United Way of Clallam County envisions living in a place where everyone is supported socially, economically and in their physical and mental health. Our Mission is to strengthen our community by helping people live safe, healthy, and productive lives. One of the ways we reach our mission is to lead collaborative, community-wide efforts to obtain and provide resources to enhance community well-being. Therefore, the United Way of Clallam County is pleased to announce a collaboration with Prevention Works! regarding the following funding opportunity.
Many educational events have taken place in Clallam County with organizers and attendees from a cross-sector of agencies to inform and educate the community about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Trauma Informed Care, and the N.E.A.R. Sciences. At one such event, members of the community gathered to share a meal, view the film ‘Resilience’ and discuss priorities, common purposes, and next steps for supporting resiliency in Clallam County.
The United Way of Clallam County has partnered with Prevention Works! to fund other events in Clallam County to raise awareness, knowledge, and practices related to ACEs and N.E.A.R. sciences. Between May 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020, six to twelve mini-grants, in the amount of $500.00 to $1,000.00, will be available for non-profit organizations throughout Clallam County that are organizing community-wide educational programs focused on ACEs, Trauma Informed Care and/or the N.E.A.R. Sciences. Grants will be made on an on-going basis between May 1, 2019 and January 15th, 2020, or until funds are depleted.
Applications will be accepted by the 15th of each month with award announcements made by the last day of the month until funds are depleted. Reimbursement for awards will be made once the attached evaluation(s) is completed and returned, no later than 2 weeks after the program.
