1 min read

Hopeful Horizons is pleased to announce the receipt of two grants from the Berkeley Hall Charitable Foundation (BHCF). The first grant, in the amount of $20,000, will support the Abuse Prevention Coalition (APC). Hopeful Horizons, the local Children’s Advocacy, Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Center, along with the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA), comprise the APC. The APC has been working for the past five years to reduce gender violence and child abuse by implementing programs that address root causes of the problem targeting children/youth in schools as the focus population. The $20,000 from BHCF will be used to expand the capacity of the APC to provide these prevention programs to the greater Bluffton area for students in middle and high schools.

The second grant, in the amount of $10,000, will support the ability of Hopeful Horizons’ Bluffton office to provide much-needed services to victims of child abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence to include: child forensic interviews, therapy for children and adults, family advocacy, crisis intervention, support and educational groups for adults and children, legal services and prevention and education programming.

The Berkeley Hall Charitable Foundation is a 501c3. The goal of the Berkeley Hall Charitable Foundation is to help non-profits improve lives by funding projects that address the basic human needs of the most vulnerable residents of the Bluffton community and neighboring Beaufort County.
