“Grace Medical Home is a comprehensive medical practice dedicated exclusively to the low-income, uninsured residents of Orange County. As a Grace Medical Home partner, the Anew Foundation has helped fill the gaps by funding medical services that would otherwise be unobtainable for our patients. Some examples of the vital services provided by Anew include diagnostic imaging or biopsies that equip physicians with critical information to better manage patient care. Similarly, Anew has provided funding for ancillary health services such as hearing aids, eye glasses or dentures that greatly improve the quality of life and help restore dignity for many of our patients. Since working with Anew, our patients have received thousands of dollars worth of medical services that are vital for whole-patient care. ”

~Susan Gardner RN, Care Coordination Manager, Grace Medical Home

“We are extremely grateful for support from Anew Foundation, enabling us to significantly expand our ability to partner with and serve our community members experiencing need. Anew Foundation’s support has made it possible for the Gleaning Initiative to improve our transportation and storage infrastructure to support the growth and sustainability of our work. The Gleaning Initiative is a community-based resiliency building effort that connects people and organizations to sources of healthy and local food that would otherwise go to waste. Anew Foundation is helping us to meet the critical needs of communities across Hancock and Washington Counties and to grow our efforts working with farmers, schools, food security organizations, people in recovery and youth across the region.”

~ Hannah Semler, Gleaning Coordinator, Healthy Acadia in partnership with UMaine Cooperative Extension

“The Orlando Museum of Art is thrilled to receive funding from the Anew Foundation for its Family ArtReach program during the 2015 – 2016 season. Family ArtReach delivers more than 100 hours of instructor-guided studio art classes and workshops plus five interactive Museum exhibition tours to children and families living at the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida. Studio art activities include clay sculpture, print making, drawing, painting and collage.

Family ArtReach provides Coalition residents with a rare opportunity for privacy and reflection time, two commodities which are not easy to come by due to the nature of their living arrangements in the facilities. As a result, engagement in the program helps reduce stress levels in child and adult participants. Finally, engaging in art-making activities helps the residents develop skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving and patience which serve as building blocks for stable and successful lives. Anew Foundation support will help Family ArtReach serve approximately 450 Coalition residents annually.”
~Dan Calleja, Grants Manager, Orlando Museum of Art

The Society of St. Andrew (SoSA) coordinates thousands of volunteers each year to go into farmers’ fields, groves and orchards gleaning 3 – 6 million pounds of healthy nutritious fruits and veggies. We then distribute the food to agencies that feed the hungry throughout Florida, thus bridging the gap between food, otherwise wasted, and the hungry.  Support from the Anew Foundation grant helps cover the cost of packaging and freight for food distribution.
~Barbara Sayles, Director, Society of St. Andrew
