A Huntington Beach community organization that provides financial support for single-parent families has received a $379,000 grant, the group announced Tuesday in a news release.
The Project Self Sufficiency Foundation, a partner with the city, was awarded the grant from the ECMC Foundation, a Los Angeles-based organization that seeks to improve education among the poor, according to the company website.
The Project Self Sufficiency Foundation has been working since 1985 in Huntington Beach to assist low-income single parents. It helps 50 families a year, but with the new three-year grant expects to be able to serve 75 other households in the nearby communities of Fountain Valley, Garden Grove and Santa Ana, the news release said.
