Northern Bank Charitable Foundation is pleased to present Heading Home with $10,000 Donation
Since our founding in 1960, Northern Bank has maintained the firm belief that a strong bank, invested in the towns we serve, financially strengthens local communities. In addition to the many hours our team members dedicate to organizations in our communities, Northern invests through the Northern Bank Charitable Foundation. Created in 2012, the Northern Bank Charitable Foundation provides financial support to non-profits and other community organizations that promote educational opportunities, youth and social services or community development.
In 2016, the Northern Bank Charitable Foundation provided contributions ranging from $250 to $50,000 to more than 30 local organizations. We are pleased to donate $10,000 to Heading Home, a nonprofit organization based in Charlestown, Mass. that pioneer programs to end homelessness in Greater Boston.
“With over 4,100 homeless families in Massachusetts alone, Northern Bank is proud see this contribution make a difference in the lives of homeless families,” said James Mawn, President & CEO, Northern Bank. “We applaud Heading Home in striving toward ending homelessness, and we are proud to make this donation to a nationally-recognized nonprofit leader known for long-term success.”
For eleven consecutive years, at least 90 percent of the residents in Heading Home Inc.’s permanent housing programs have remained successfully housed a year later.
