March 22, 2023 - FIBCO Family Services, Inc. has received a $125,000 grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust to upgrade five properties that house people who might otherwise be homeless.
“Our agency has provided housing and supporting social services to over one hundred elderly and disabled individuals over the past thirty-six years,” said Ernie Urquhart, FIBCO board chair and chief operating officer. “This grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust enables us to acquire and install capital resources such as appliances, roofing, plumbing, and quality windows that will make the home environment even more comfortable for the 30 plus residents who have affordable housing challenges. We will make these houses more attractive for home living.”
