Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Italian Home for Children
The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated $5,000 to Italian Home for Children (IHC). This grant will be used to fund external phone translation services to better serve their diverse population of clients and families. As the agency strives to become more inclusive, the funds will allow IHC to provide critical mental health services to clients in their own language.

The Trustees of the Foundation accept grant requests from community organizations and make awards twice per year.
