Harbor House Receives Lowe’s Hometown Grant
Harbor House is one of 100 nationwide grant recipients
July 21, 2022
Appleton, Wisconsin – Harbor House, an agency committed to the awareness and prevention of domestic abuse and sexual assault serving Outagamie and Calumet Counties, announced they are the recipient of a Lowe’s Hometown Grant for critical upgrades that enhance and expand Harbor House services.
Dixon Ticonderoga nominated Harbor House as a recipient. Dixon Ticonderoga was asked by Lowe’s to submit a grant request on behalf of a local non-profit and chose Harbor House as our nominee.
The Lowe’s Hometowns program is a $100 million commitment over five years to the communities Lowe’s serves by providing grants which serve to restore and revitalize spaces that aid U.S. communities. Harbor House is one of 100 organizations to receive a grant this year.
The grant will enable Harbor House to complete three improvement projects at their Appleton facility:
- Installation of a new, secure entrance to create a profound sense of safety and peace of mind for clients, specifically victims of sexual assault.
- Transform an existing space into a boutique where all clients can shop for clothes and personal items at no charge. Often clients are fleeing dangerous situations and in some cases, personal belongings are left behind or may become evidence.
- Create dedicated space for victims of sexual assault to receive individual and group support, advocacy, and education. This private space will also be used for victims to meet with law enforcement, medical supports and community partners.
Work on each of these projects will take place between July and November of this 2022. Volunteers from Lowe’s and Dixon Ticonderoga will help complete the projects.
