Boise-based Joanne Taylor PR, writes winning grant for Children’s Home Society


I recently got word that the very first grant I wrote received funding–$25,000 from The Lightfoot Foundation to the Children’s Home Society of Idaho for its Pre-Doctoral Internship Program at the Warm Springs Training Institute.

With this grant, the Lightfoot Foundation makes a significant impact on the ability of the Children’s Home Society to provide valuable, hands-on training to pre-doctoral interns that fosters the development of skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to provide competent and ethical psychological services to children, adolescents, adults, and families. The Children’s Home offers these services to low-income children and the families that care for them regardless of their ability to pay, thus giving hope to people in our community who traditionally have had few choices in obtaining counseling and assessment services due to overwhelming costs.

So, a note of thanks to The Lightfoot Foundation for its dedication to The Children’s Home Society and its unwavering devotion to the well-being of students, children and families in Idaho. It is a privilege to work with organizations like Lightfoot, and the champions of the causes they support.
