The YWCA of Greater Los Angeles Wins $50,000 Grant

The McAllister & Quinn nonprofit team recently assisted the YWCA of Greater Los Angeles to obtain a Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Outreach grant. The award is for $50,000 over a 36 month period. With this funding, the YWCA of Greater Los Angeles will engage and inform community members at the Supervisor Gloria Molina Community Empowerment Center in Walnut Park on issues surrounding transportation, walkability, and physical activity for the area. The YWCA of Greater Los Angeles will initiate resource fairs, workshops, meetings, informational campaigns, and community events around these topics to improve community health. Ultimately, this grant will enable local residents to provide feedback regarding pedestrian and biking issues in this high-need area.
