United Thank Offering Board of the Episcopal Church
Jasmine Road, Inc. received a $40,500 grant from the United Thank Offering Board of the Episcopal Church awarded by the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina. We are so grateful!
In 2017-2018, the Episcopal Church is focused on its “Jesus Movement,” which emphasizes Christ-like relationship-building among neighbors and communities. We are humbled that Jasmine Road, Inc.’s mission has been recognized as an example of Christ’s presence and work in the world. The grant will assist in funding Jasmine Road, Inc.’s start-up costs, including website development, the purchase of two computers, and salaries for employees. We are infinitely grateful to Christ Church Episcopal for its help in writing and sponsoring the grant request, and we specifically thank Bishop Andrew Waldo, Reverend Deacon d’Rue Hazel, Phyllis Webb, Reverend Dr. Harrison McLeod, and Frances Poe. Christ Church Episcopal continues to be an incredible partner in helping us get the necessary funding and support to officially launch Jasmine Road, Inc.
John I. Smith Charities
Jasmine Road is the very grateful recipient of a $40,000 grant from John I. Smith Charities for capital funds designated to help renovate our first safe house. This generous gift will be utilized to assist with the $125,000 renovation project. The renovation should take three to four months, and the house will be transformed into a beautiful and therapeutic sanctuary to house our first five residents in the first half of 2018. Many thanks to Triune Mercy Center’s Deb Richardson Moore and Beth Messick, as well as the Jasmine Road grant writing team, for their help in pursuing this grant.
