Banyan Grove Endowment Grant Aids Housing for Residents

Providing much-needed housing assistance for Keys residents with critical temporary and permanent housing challenges is possible thanks to a generous $12,731 grant to Samuel’s House from the Banyan Grove Endowment at the Community Foundation. The funding will assist Samuel’s House in supplying housing and shelter assistance and numerous support services for homeless women and intact families in Key West.

“As problems in our local, regional and national economies persist, the needs of our clients continue to increase at the same time that supportive resources continue to decrease, and contributions like these help us tremendously in our mission,” said Tara Salinas, executive director of Samuel’s House. “This donation will go a long way to help so many!”

The Banyan Grove Endowment, established by members of the Spottswood Family at the Community Foundation in 2014, supports affordable and special housing needs, disaster relief assistance, and other causes.

“It’s been a very challenging time for many of our residents over the past year or more,” said Andrea Spottswood, one of the Banyan Grove Endowment fund advisors. “We’re pleased to be able to help with essential needs, like housing, and grateful to be able to support nonprofits like Samuel’s House, which are critical to helping those in most need in our community.”
