The Lyon Cares Foundation announced today that Joshua’s House is the recipient of a $5,000 grant. Their mission is to improve communication around end-of-life issues and to reduce health disparities among underserved populations, including the homeless.
Operated by Lyon Real Estate, the Lyon Cares Foundation offers time, talent, and treasure to local nonprofits that make their communities a better place. Funds are raised through escrow and payroll contributions by Lyon agents and staff in addition to Lyon’s annual Golf Tournament.
“Lyon’s generous donation will go towards bedding, towels, wash clothes, personal hygiene items, clothing, and supplies for the 20 residents of Joshua’s House, the first hospice house for the terminally ill homeless on the West Coast and the seventh in the nation,” said Marlene Fitzwater, Founder/Director of Joshua’s House. “This donation will touch so many and improve the lives of those experiencing homelessness at the end of life.”
“It gives us great pride to give this grant to Joshua’s House,” said Lyon Real Estate president Pat Shea. “They are doing very important work.”
In 2018, each of Lyon’s 14 offices, in addition to their headquarters office will be giving two $5,000 grants to organizations of their choice, totaling $150,000. Lyon’s Land Park office chose Joshua’s House to be the recipient of their grant.
