About The Foundation

The Charitable Foundation of the Southland Regional Association of Realtors recently presented grants to seven local nonprofit organizations that assist homeless individuals and families in crisis.

In a reception held in Studio City, Diane Sydell, SRAR president, presented checks in the amount of $5,000 to:

• Hope of the Valley
• ONEGeneration
• MAPS  Charities — Mission to Assist and Provide for Seniors
• Bridge to Home
• San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission
• L.A. Family Housing
• Strength United

 The Charitable Foundation in May also donated $2,000 to each of the following nonprofit organizations:

• Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center
• Operation Gratitude
• Northridge Hospital Foundation
• New Horizons
• Santa Clarita Valley Kids Holiday Party

“Each of these organizations provides invaluable services to needy members of our community,” said Wendy Furth, chair of the SRAR Charitable Foundation. “We need more affordable housing for everyone, and these are the people and nonprofits that fill the gap, working tirelessly to keep people in a home and off the streets. 

“It’s gratifying that Realtors play a role in making that happen,” Furth said. In the coming weeks this page will profile each of the recipients
