We are excited to share that Transitions has been named a Bank of America Neighborhood Champion in recognition of our work to address poverty and homelessness in Spokane. Our nonprofit will receive a $50,000 grant and virtual leadership training for our executive director and an emerging leader.
Funding from Bank of America’s grant will support Transitions’ New Leaf Kitchen and Café’s third location, which will be housed at the Spokane Public Library at the heart of downtown. New Leaf is a trauma-informed culinary job training program designed to help low-income women gain the professional skills and confidence necessary for economic self-sufficiency.
Since 2019, Bank of America has invested $6.3 million in 126 organizations within 42 communities through its Neighborhood Champions program.
