COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA - Anawim Housing is excited to share that we have been awarded a $360,000 grant from the Iowa West Foundation. This grant will provide funding for the creation of Permanent Supportive Housing in Council Bluffs, Iowa. There is a large gap in supportive housing currently available in this community and Iowa West Foundation and Anawim Housing will work to address this critical need.
"Anawim Housing is looking forward to the opportunity to support existing providers in the community through an enhanced service delivery model that builds upon the vital work already taking place,” said Russ Frazier, President of Anawim Housing. “Through the generous gift from the Iowa West Foundation we expect to provide housing solutions and case management support for many of Council Bluffs’ most vulnerable citizens. Utilizing a housing first approach with a foundation in evidence-based practices we believe this new collaboration will have a significant impact on the unsheltered population in the community.”
The Iowa West Foundation approved approximately $3.5 million in grant and initiative funding for more than 20 nonprofits.
