EO Media Group finds public-private partnership pays dividends in Pendleton with Promise Inn
Oregon Community Foundation's $1.3 million dollar grant to CAPECO, in March of 2021, opened the doors to expand CAPECO's housing services in the Pendleton area exponentially. With the addition of CAPECO's motel-turned-homeless shelter purchase people now have the security of a place to stay while navigating local services in an effort to become fully self-sufficient.
In her article, Keeping The Promise, EO Media Group's Sheila Hagar brings together pictures, stories, and information from Promise Inn participants, Oregon Community Foundation, and CAPECO to paint the picture of Promise Inn's beginnings.
We are thrilled to announce that the Pendleton Foundation Trust has awarded CAPECO a grant of $22,000. These funds will be used specifically to complete Promise Inn's eleven remaining rooms. Promise Inn is CAPECO's homeless shelter and transitional housing project, a 34-room facility, in downtown Pendleton.
Pendleton Foundation Trust's generous contribution are making a significant impact on this important project and further demonstrates Pendleton Foundation Trust's commitment to philanthropy and service in our community.
This grant is just one example, among many others, where Pendleton Foundation Trust has made meaningful investments into organizations like CAPECO which provide essential services throughout our area. We hope you join us in celebrating this award by visiting Pendleton Foundation Trust's website to view their current and past grants and scholarships as well as see how you can help support their mission.
CAPECO believes that everyone deserves access to quality housing regardless of income level or other circumstances. We are proud to partner with organizations that are dedicated to providing financial support allowing CAPECO to offer shelter assistance and other resources, for those who need it most.
