Intero Foundation awards grant to SAVE
Submitted By Tina Fernandez
Cupertino-based Intero Foundation has awarded three Fremont charitable organizations $17,500 in grants, including $7,500 to benefit Safe Alternatives to Violent EnvironmentsÕ (SAVE) ChildrenÕs Program.
On March 18, 2015 SAVEÕs Executive Director, Nina Clymer, visited the Fremont Intero Real Estate office on Mission Boulevard to accept the grant check and thank Intero agents for choosing SAVE to benefit from this opportunity. Because many of the children SAVE serves suffer trauma as the result of domestic violence, its therapeutic services are designed to address both individual emotional health and family wellness. Services at SAVEÕs Emergency Shelter and The Empowerment Center at SAVE include play therapy, individual childrenÕs counseling, and family therapy sessions.
SAVE will use the grant to purchase a variety of therapeutic games, art supplies, and toys, as well as loveseats and chairs for its Emergency Shelter family therapy room. The FoundationÕs generosity will help SAVEÕs work to encourage the process of overcoming trauma, encouraging self-confidence and independence, and modeling healthy relationships.
SAVE applauds the Foundation and FremontÕs Intero Real Estate team for this grant, evidence that theyÕre striving to fulfill their mission of positively impacting the growth and well-being of children by supporting organizations focused on assisting in their education and personal development.
