ICT S.O.S. was chosen from 3,000 entries to compete in the top 100 Causes for a $25,000 grant from the State Farm Youth Advisory Board. The grant will be chosen by a Facebook voting competition. The top 40 organizations will each receive $25,000 to use toward their community improving cause.
As of Monday April 30th, ICT S.O.S. was in 20th place. You can vote 10 times a day EACH DAY.
Voting ends May 17
Winners will be announced May 22nd. Please vote each day and share the link on your Facebook pages. It will take a strong effort all the way through the competition to remain in the top 40!
If we win the grant, ICT S.O.S. will be using it to renovate the houseparent quarters in the Independent Living Program at Carpenter Place. This will also free up 2 additional apartments for young women aged 18-24. Currently the program has 6 apartments. 4 are occupied and there are 4 potential residents coming to tour the remaining 2 this week alone. The need is great and we have a chance to create real change in the lives of at-risk young women in our city!
