The Shepherd’s Center of Hamilton County has announced that it now is an accredited partner with United Way of Central Indiana.
The partnership means Shepherd’s Center can apply for United Way grants in basic needs, family opportunity and social innovation and have access to training, technical assistance and capacity building programs.
To receive accreditation with United Way, a nonprofit in the human services sector must meet all legal requirements for a nonprofit agency in Indiana, align with United Way’s focus areas of education, financial stability, health and basic needs and serve individuals and families in Boone, Hancock, Hamilton, Hendricks, Marion and Morgan counties.
“We are grateful for the impact United Way of Central Indiana’s COVID-19 pandemic response funding had for seniors in our community. We were able to ensure that seniors remained safe and healthy during this difficult time,” stated Lauren Guynn, Shepherd’s Center of Hamilton County’s executive director. “Our new accreditation allows us to continue this great partnership to change the way people age in Hamilton County.”
There are 91 accredited community-based organizations of United Way of Central Indiana. Applications are reviewed on an invitation-only basis.
