Interfaith Community Services was one recipient of the U.S.S. Midway Foundation’s 2016 charitable giving grants, receiving $30,000 in funding to support the Hawthorne Veteran and Family Resource Center.

“Freedom isn’t free, and the Midway Foundation is here to help ensure that those who protect our liberties receive the support they need,” said Malin Burnham, Midway Foundation Board Chairman.

The Midway Foundation, formed to support the Midway Museum’s vision of becoming America’s living symbol of freedom, focuses on organizations that serve those who have historically protected and currently protect America’s freedoms.

“This is a highly impactful way that the Midway Museum, as a non-profit, can give back to the community and we are already planning for the 2017 competitive grant process next fall,” added Daniel Beintema, Midway Foundation President.

Interfaith’s Hawthorne Veteran and Family Resource Center opened in October 2015 to serve both homeless veterans and non-veterans post-hospitalization for a variety of physical and/or mental conditions.  The center also provides a full range of self-sufficiency services to veterans and their families.

Interfaith thanks the U.S.S. Midway Foundation for their support of our services and commitment to the local veteran community!  We look forward to growing our partnership in the future and working together to serve our nation’s heroes.
