The Starbucks Foundation has awarded Odyssey House a $2,500 Neighborhood Grant to support our COVID-19 response efforts. Odyssey House is one of 400 organizations nationwide to receive grants as part of its efforts to support communities impacted by the pandemic.
“Thank you, Starbucks, for recognizing the hard work Odyssey House and other community health care providers do and continue to do throughout this crisis,” said Odyssey House President Dr. Peter Provet. “Grants like this allow us to continue our mission: helping New Yorkers in need to overcome substance misuse, mental health challenges, and homelessness.”
The Neighborhood Grants are part of the Starbuck Foundation’s commitment to investing in initiatives that extend emergency assistance to those in need while also helping build a path towards recovery and resilience. The grants were informed and inspired by Starbucks partners who highlighted the causes and organizations uplifting their communities during COVID-19.
