In May, Saheli was pleased to receive a Targeted Grant, for Violence Prevention, from the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation ($10,000). The category of Violence Prevention is an area that has implications across the board,
including but not limited to issues associated with violence at home, school, in the work place and in our neighborhoods. With this grant, Saheli will be able to support much-needed relevant trainings for domestic violence advocates.
In June, Saheli was a proud recipient of a CHNA 15 2015-16 Mini-Grant ($6,000). With these grant funds Saheli is working towards developing innovative means of connecting survivors of domestic violence with appropriate mental healthcare providers.
Also in June, Saheli’s efforts were recognized with a $500 check from the Burlington Muslim group, thanking the organization for making a difference in the community.
