The Foundation for Delaware County announces that WSFS Bank recently made a $5,000 contribution to the Housing Stability Program that benefits low-income, vulnerable women, children and families in need of affordable housing in the City of Chester.
The project is a partnership between The Foundation for Delaware County and the Chester Housing Authority.
WSFS is one of five investors to contribute to this new initiative and will receive tax credits under the Special Program Priorities (SPP) project.
The project was approved in November 2019 for funding by the PA Department of Economic Development (DCED) as part of the Neighborhood Assistance Tax Credit Program.
Under the project, program participants in the foundation’s Healthy Start and Nurse-Family Partnership programs will receive assistance and support to allow them to access affordable housing units provided by Chester Housing Authority.
“I want to thank everyone involved in the Housing Stability Program,” commented Keshla Cruz, a current Nurse-Family Partnership program participant. “This opportunity has provided my family much joy, peace, and safety. Having a place to call home has truly made a difference to me and my family and they are all so happy.”
