Grant in Action: Elizabeth Ann Seton Program-Springfield

Helping women help themselves, their families

The Elizabeth Ann Seton Program-Springfield is helping women take charge of their lives in a positive way thanks to a grant from Memorial Medical Center Foundation.

The impact of this project benefits the families and ultimately the community in which they live because we are helping the women become self reliant.

The $20,000 grant awarded in 2016 is supporting three 16-session workshops to teach women how to become better individuals and parents. Session topics include improving mental and physical well-being, planning meals and purchasing nutritional food on a limited income and building resources to break the cycle of poverty.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to give the women in our program a chance to improve their lives,” said Dawn Morris, executive director of EAS. “The impact of this project benefits the families and ultimately the community in which they live because we are helping the women become self reliant.”
