CEOC Awarded Multi-Year United Way Grant
CEOC has been selected as one of 124 beneficiaries of the new United Way of Massachusetts Bay initiative dedicating more than $56 million to cutting-edge programs at 124 community-based organizations through 2030.
This transformative grant will play a pivotal role in CEOC’s efforts to expand financial education and empowerment in our community, providing $50,000 a year for three years, with the opportunity for four additional years of funding.
Over the next year, CEOC will train eight facilitators, fluent in Spanish, Haitian Creole, Amharic, and Bangla, to provide peer-led financial education sessions with a CEOC Financial Coach in their respective communities. This exciting new pilot program is based on CEOC’s successful “HIV Safety Net Party” model used to teach reproductive health.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the United Way of Massachusetts Bay for enabling these meaningful steps toward a more financially resilient and empowered future for Cambridge residents.
