Grants

The budget to operate Capuchin Community Services’ two sites is a little over $2.5 million each year. Much of our support comes from individuals, groups and organizations. Jessica Grochowski, MPA is the Capuchin Franciscan Province of St. Joseph’s Grantwriter. Jessie writes to foundations, trusts and donor advised funds for help with the budget at St. Ben’s Community Meal and the House of Peace. Here are some of the groups that gave to CCS:
