Jerusalem House, Atlanta's oldest and largest provider of housing for homeless and low-income individuals affected by HIV/AIDS, is in the running for a $250,000 grant from the Home Depot Foundation.
The local nonprofit was also awarded a $25,000 grant last year as part of the Aprons in Action campaign where users of the social networking site Facebook voted for one of three nonprofits per month.
Each of the monthly finalists will now have one month to secure as many votes for their organization as possible. Click here to vote: https://www.facebook.com/homedepotfoundation?sk=app_112064278918490
Jerusalem House had this to say on its Facebook page:
Last June, you help us win the monthly qualifying round and $25,000 prize, and now it's time to take it to the next level! If we win, the funds will be put towards completely renovating our onsite Learning Center, accessed by all of our child and adult residents to gain the skills and education they need for future success.
Other finalists contending for the $250,000 grant include Jewish Family Service (Southfield, Mi.), Life Builder of Detroit (Detroit, Mi.), Utah State Veterans Home (Salt Lake City, Ut.), Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans (Wheaton, Il.), Taylor VFW Post #4422 (Taylor, Mi.), Northwest Hospital Foundation (Seattle, Wa.), New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity (New Orleans, La.), Ronald McDonald House of Detroit (Detroit, Mi.) and Great Falls Children Receiving Home (Great Falls, Mt.).
Voting kicks off on Mar. 1, 2012. Supporters can vote once a day, every day, through the end of the month. For more information, please visit www.facebook.com/homedepotfoundation
