Lorain, Ohio (March 1, 2013) An $8,000 grant from State Farm will help some Lorain County citizens ensure financial stability. The grant will go towards El Centro's Money Management program which provides representative payee services to individuals 18 and over from Lorain County who are struggling with severe physical and mental disorders that render them unable to manage their own personal finances.
Services include accounting and individual support to secure the basic needs for the betterment of the client. The program was implemented in 1989 in response to the need for representative payee services to individuals with severe and persistent mental disabilities, which causes problems in budgeting for necessities. The primary function of the Money Management Program is to ensure that clients meet their basic living needs, primarily housing and to avoid homelessness and re-hospitalization.
State Farm is committed to building safer, stronger and better educated communities, said Lorain State Farm Agent Dan DePalma. I'm proud to present this grant to El Centro in order to help citizens in our community.
