CODA is very proud to be a recipient of a GROW grant from Advantis Credit Union.  More than 20,000 votes were cast to determine which seven nonprofit organizations would be selected to receive a grant supporting long-term benefits to the families in our community.

The funds will provide great new playground equipment at CODA’s  Stepping Stones transitional housing.

Stepping Stones provides supported housing for Washington County women who are below the federal poverty level, have substance abuse disorders, and are eligible for a Department of Human Services (DHS) reunification plan with their children.

Congrats to all this year’s winners who join us in this wonderful program  — the Chelsea Hicks Foundation, Friends of the Children, Our House of Portland, Portland Homeless Family Solutions, Q Center, Rose Haven.

Thank you, Advantis!
