Sarasota's Second Heart Homes nonprofit has received a $20,000 grant from Church of the Redeemer. The organization provides permanent and transitional homes, daily supportive services and skill-building workshops tailored to clients’ individual needs. The funds will be used to repair and refurbish two recently purchased duplexes that will provide secure housing, stability and critical support services to 12 homeless women with mental health issues. Megan Howell, founder and executive director of Second Heart Homes said, “Roofing, flooring, plumbing, electrical and other repairs are needed to bring the duplexes up to our gold-star standards so that we can begin taking in women. This grant, and the extension of friendship, is such a wonderful surprise." 

“Church of the Redeemer is committed to the work of meeting human needs and alleviating suffering in our communities,” said The Rev. David Svihel, clergy representative for the church’s Mission and Outreach Committee. “We are excited to support Second Heart Homes because they are working hard to address unmet housing and mental-health support needs for Sarasota’s more than 200 homeless women.”
