VOICES Napa, Cope Family Center Receive Grants

At-risk and low-income youth in Napa got some help recently from Bank of America. B of A provided two Napa based non-profits, VOICES and the Cope Family Center, with grants totaling $12,500 to support career development and financial safety net services for families in the community.

VOICES Napa helps transitioning foster youth (ages 16-24) succeed in education and employment, despite barriers that may otherwise hold them back. Youth participants work toward achieving their education and career goals through 1:1 mentoring and coaching, while having access to a variety of other resources and support.

Bank of America provided VOICES with a grant to help with their career development program, “EXPLORATIONS College and Career Center.” The grant will enable a group of transitioning youth through each stage of their secondary and postsecondary educational experience and help to provide job readiness, placement, retention and financial literacy services.

 The Cope Family Center provides full range parent education and family support services with child abuse prevention, parent education and self-sufficiency services. Bank of America’s grant to the nonprofit will help families through crisis, gain access to essential supports, empower them to advocate for themselves and move toward financial stability.
