APWC is honored to be selected as a 2015 Community Benefit grant recipient by the Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Center (KP BPMC). We were awarded $7,500 to support our Community Education and Empowerment Program.
Our partnership with KP BPMC will help us increase awareness of our services to vulnerable domestic violence survivors, while also allowing us to provide no-cost mental health services to more survivors. We are excited to create more partnerships within the community to decrease the stigma on receiving mental health services. With this partnership, we will also be able to decrease some of the barriers preventing survivors from seeking help, such as lack of transportation or child care.
APWC staff and members of other grantee organizations were invited to a Community Benefit Partner Reception in June, which provided the opportunity for grantee organizations to network with other community leaders and to learn more about KP BPMC’s work in the community.
Thank you, KP BPMC, for your support of the community and of APWC!
