The Cooper Housing Institute, a nonprofit organization that aims to fund research, education and programs related to housing challenges in the United States, announced today that it has awarded $50,000 in individual grants to South County Outreach, Mercy House and Illumination Foundation, totaling $150,000. These grants are part of a program by the Cooper Housing Institute to fund community-based organizations in Orange County to address housing crises created by the COVID-19 pandemic. They follow a similar $50,000 grant made to Family Assistance Ministries in July. "Before the COVID-19 pandemic even began, many adults and children throughout Orange County were already fighting to keep a roof over their head and food on their table," said Cooper Housing Institute Co-Founder Will Cooper Jr. "We are proud to present three deserving nonprofit organizations with grants to support a cause that we have been championing for decades – the fight to end homelessness."
