East Boston APAC’s parent agency, Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD), has received a grant from Liberty Mutual Insurance to address youth homelessness in Eastie and across Boston
ABCD will be part of a $5 million effort by Liberty to support organizations in greater Boston working to reduce and end youth homelessness. ABCD was one of 19 organizations to receive funding.
ABCD and its East Boston APAC office have long provided case management of homeless youth and young adults as well as an emergency-needs fund and workforce development opportunities. Liberty will provide a $300,000 grant to ABCD to bolster these vital programs.
”As you can imagine, we were thrilled to be among the grantees,” said ABCD’s Lee Phenner. “The grant will allow ABCD to develop more centralized programming for all homeless youth in Boston.”
