NEWPORT NEWS, VA – The Langley for Families Foundation awarded 26 grants to local organizations that focus on children and family issues in Hampton Roads. The Foundation addresses four specific areas of need in the community—healthcare, housing and human services, safety and security, and financial education. Monies are raised through various fundraising activities during the year. Eligibility for funds are determined in part by a non-profit’s impact on families in the local community, and whether the non-profit fits the mission of the Foundation.

 
(L-R) Ability Center Development Director Kathleen Petersen, Langley Corporate Relations AVP Gary Hunter, Ability Center representatives Josiah Baker, Ashley Bruno, Kyle Diddio, Langley Collections VP Jose Iregui, Ability Center Executive Director Michelle Prendergast, and Program Director Anna Bellars.  

“The volunteers worked very hard to raise money this year and the results enabled the Foundation to select local agencies who feed, house and support thousands of people in Hampton Roads,” stated Foundation Chairman Fred Hagerman. “Langley for Families is encouraged by the support of sponsors and individual donors who made the fundraising events a success.”
