As highlighted in this piece by Bruce Coulter of the Woburn Advocate, SCI was recently awarded a Vela Foundation grant in the amount of $15,000 to aid our efforts to foster healthy communities, specifically in Chelsea, MA. In partnership with Healthy Chelsea, SCI plans to train 10 grassroots community leaders to develop and implement health promotion projects in Chelsea neighborhoods. This step will coincide with continued use and development of an SCI-designed interactive web portal linking Chelsea residents to health and community resources. As SCI Founder and President David Crowley mentions in the linked article, private foundation grants like these our essential to SCI's continued development of new programming.
