The Damien Center Honored with Grant Awards


February 14, 2012



The Damien Center relies on funding from many sources to provide the high quality programs and services that help us meet our mission. In recent months we have received several grants from private foundations that will help us continue to improve our services and meet the needs of our clients. We have recently received notification of funding awards for three now positions that will expand our services to our HIV clients:

Marion County Public Health Department has awarded The Damien Center through Ryan White funding a full-time Mental Health and Substance Abuse Counselor as well as a full-time Medical Case Manager.

MAC AIDS Fund has awarded The Damien Center with a part-time Housing Case-manager.

In addition to these exciting new positions, The Damien Center was recently awarded the following grants:

The Indianapolis Foundation, a CICF affiliate: $40,000 for general operating support

Christ Church Cathedral: $10,000 for general operating support

The Realtor Foundation – $3,500 to provide one transitional housing unit for the transgender population

Canfield Memorial Trust - $1,500 to support Kids Club programming

We are grateful to these funders for recognizing the importance of supporting HIV/AIDS programs in our community and for their confidence in The Damien Center’s ability to provide these services.
