Children’s Home Society is Awarded Two Major Grants in February

The Children’s Home Society of Idaho today announced it has received two major grants in the month of February.

The Lightfoot Foundation has granted $25,000 to fund one intern in the pre-doctoral internship program at the society’s Warm Springs Training Institute (WSTI); and The Gladys E. Langroise Advised Fund in the Idaho Community Foundation has granted $75,000 to the society’s Community Sponsorship Program (CSP), which allows children whose families may not otherwise afford emotional and behavioral health care to receive the services they need.

“February has been a fantastic month for fund raising,” said Teresa Alexander, CEO of the Children’s Home Society of Idaho. “With the combination of these two grants, Children’s Home will be able to disperse funds throughout our various programs: Warm Springs Counseling Center, Warm Springs Training Institute and our Bridge programs, which all benefit children and families in need of emotional and behavioral care.”

In recent years, The Lightfoot Foundation has been a continued source of support for Children’s Home Society’s Warm Springs Training Institute— an exceptional educational institute providing training and continuing education credits for psychology professionals. The institute also offers an American Psychology Association-Accredited internship program for pre-doctoral individuals.

The Gladys E. Langroise Advised Fund has also been a continued supporter of the Children’s Home Society and its mission to care for Idaho’s children— with the most recent grant being allocated to the society’s Community Sponsorship Program, which allows children whose families may not otherwise be able to afford emotional and behavioral health care services to get the care they need. The Community Sponsorship Program is offered through the Children’s Home Society’s Warm Springs Counseling Center. The Gladys E. Langroise Advised Fund has indicated that this latest grant is to be applied to all children needing assistance of the CSP program, but has put emphasis on making sure the funds are also applied to The Bridge— the Children’s Home Society’s program offering specialized counseling and therapy to children in foster care.
