Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports House of Possibilities
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated $10,000 to House of Possibilities (HOPe). Funds will be used to build an outdoor learning center to expand the facilities at their Easton Campus. HOPe runs a variety of programs for children and adults with disabilities, including day programs, social and recreational programs, and overnight respite. The two-phase expansion project will allow more of HOPe’s members to take advantage of their programs, which currently carry waitlists due to the growing needs in the communities they serve.

ABOUT DEDHAM SAVINGS COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation is a privately funded foundation created by Dedham Savings in 2000 to provide financial support to charitable organizations that serve disadvantaged populations within the Bank’s community reinvestment area. These communities include Dedham, Needham, Norwood, Sharon, South Boston, Walpole, and Westwood and contiguous areas. Typical requests are received from schools, libraries, family service organizations and non-profit organizations. The Trustees of the Foundation accept grant requests from community organizations and make awards twice per year.
