Women on Mission is blessed and pleased to announce this year’s 2015 Grant Recipients — Life for Life Gym and LCMS Lutheran Housing Support. Each organization receives $40,000 over the next two years.
Lift for Life believes that strengthening and nourishing the body leads to a long-term change in members’ attitudes, self-esteem, behavior and academic performance, and positively affects the entire community. Lift for Life plans to use this grant to welcoming and acclimating new members from College Hill to the gym and its programs, as well as increasing wellness for children and families from College Hill through nutrition education and cooking instruction, and increased access to regular exercise.
LCMS Lutheran Housing Support is working to stabilize and revitalize the once vibrant, historic neighborhood of College Hill. LCMS Lutheran Housing Support is a second-time grant recipient. This year’s program focused on the reduction of violent crime through increased security measures throughout the community, which will assist police in catching criminals, deter crime and support officer safety in the neighborhood.
