Required fields are marked * Subscribe Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  New grant funding and charitable giving opportunities are being created thanks to the collaborative efforts of the City’s Housing Department and the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF) by transferring the former Human Services Endowment Fund to PCF and establishing the new “Pasadena Assistance Fund.” The charitable endowment will be managed by PCF while the City acts as advisor to the fund and directs the grant making.We wanted to think outside the box to see how we could take the City’s existing Human Services Endowment Fund and increase its grant-making capacity. After careful consideration, we agreed that a partnership with PCF was a great solution to meet our goals,” Pasadena Housing Department Director William Huang said.The fund will continue to be focused with the same spirit and purpose of its original donors: providing support to local non-profit social service agencies that help people facing poverty, or those with disabilities or other challenges. The new partnership, however, opens up two new important means for growing the fund, currently with a principal balance of about $1.8 million.First, the City-PCF partnership provides greater visibility and fundraising opportunities. Already, the new fund name, statement and logo clearly communicates its purpose: “Building Better Lives.” Huang said the new fund’s higher profile “will hopefully inspire local community members to consider this fund in their overall charitable giving and estate plans.”Second, transferring fiscal management to PCF allows for greater investment returns over the long term due to PCF’s ability to utilize investment vehicles not previously available to the City. PCF’s investment strategy employs a diversified global portfolio of equities, bonds, and other investment vehicles that the City cannot use in the investment of public funds, PCF Executive Director Jennifer DeVoll said.Future distributions from the fund will supplement the Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) provided by the federal government to the City. Since federal funding for CDBG has declined in recent years, it is even more important to build a hometown source of similar funding for the worthwhile local social services programs, Huang said.DeVoll said helping grow the Pasadena Assistance Fund “is right in our sweet spot” for PCF.“We build hometown legacies, permanent funds to support the critical services offered by non-profit organizations within our community. We are thrilled to be working with the City to help grow the fund through prudent investment and heightened visibility.”Since its inception in 1992, the Pasadena Assistance Fund (formerly the Human Services Endowment Fund), has been managed by the City’s Human Services and Recreation Department, and then the Housing Department, distributing about $2.8 million in grants to Pasadena area non-profits agencies and organizations.For more information about the Pasadena Community Foundation, 260 S.

These modern tenements are ludicrous and not a solution to the housing crisis,” Deputy O’Sullivan declared.“I don’t know of anyone who would be excited to live in such a development.”Higher density living,  Jan believes, is the future of housing in Ireland. But she also maintains that Minister Murphy has “no ambition” for quality public housing.“There will be those who will seek apartments over houses for more long term living, especially in cities. But as we move towards this model of housing we still have to protect living standards. Just because someone is living alone, or in a smaller home, does not mean that they should need to be prepared to accept a one bedroom unit without living space or cooking facilities.“We need to solve this crisis by building quality homes in well-serviced communities. Jan went onto say that Labour recognise public housing is an “essential part of the solution to our current crisis”.“That is why we are committed to building 80,000 over five years which could be done for €16 billion if the ambition was there..”In response, a spokesman for the Department of Housing, explained that the guidelines set out policy in relation to a range of apartment types that are needed to meet the accommodation needs of a variety of household types and sizes – including households with children, students, older people and an increasingly mobile workforce.“This form of ‘niche’ development is not envisaged as an alternative or replacement to the more conventional apartment developments which are provided for elsewhere in the guidelines,” he added.Meanwhile, a spokesman for Minister Murphy expressed his disappointment to the Limerick Post “that the Labour Party is joining Sinn Féin in an attempt to cause confusion around CoLiving”.“They are attempting to destroy a concept, successful in other cities, by convincing voters that a planning application, which has not been granted, is Government policy. It’s dishonest. These guidelines were introduced 14 months ago and the Labour Party had no issue with them at that time. CoLiving is actually bringing vibrancy back into Georgian homes in Limerick City and I would urge Jan O’Sullivan to visit the development championed by LDA chairman John Moran and then speak to fact rather than political populism.” Limerick city house prices rise 4.9% as time to sell falls TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!last_img read more
