Nonprofit organizations have seen their charitable donations drop by as much as 50%
due to the downturn in the economy over the past several years. For this reason many
long standing programs are not able to carry out or in some cases continue the work
they are doing because of the reduction in funding. Many organizations have also had
to reduce critical staff as funding levels have declined.
Local Heroes Community Programs will provide funding to church, school and
nonprofit organizations only in the communities in which the Programs operate.
Through the work that will be supported by these organizations the Programs
will assist families, children with basic necessities,
including adequate and improved housing, vocational training and education,
access to doctors and medicine, quality food and clean water.
