Friendship Place has been selected as a 2023 TD Charitable Foundation Housing for Everyone Grant winner. This grant recognizes Friendship Place’s exceptional work towards creating affordable housing and supporting the homeless population in the region. 

The TD Charitable Foundation Housing for Everyone Grant program was established in 2005 to help provide access to safe, affordable housing for those in need. Since its inception, the program has awarded over $49 million in grants to non-profit organizations, supporting over 550 affordable housing initiatives across the communities TD serves. This year, the Foundation will award a total of $7 million to 37 non-profit organizations across TD Bank’s Maine-to-Florida and Michigan footprint. 

“We are thrilled to receive this grant from the TD Charitable Foundation, which will help us continue our work towards ending homelessness in the D.C. area,” said Jean-Michel Giraud, CEO of Friendship Place. “This funding will support our efforts to provide safe, affordable housing and critical services to those who need it most, and we are grateful for TD’s commitment to our mission.” 

The Housing for Everyone Grant program is an important initiative that supports the efforts of non-profit organizations like Friendship Place’s commitment to ending homelessness and rebuilding lives. TD Bank’s commitment to this program is a testament to its dedication to the communities it serves and its efforts to create a more equitable society for all. 

Friendship Place’s selection as a 2023 TD Charitable Foundation Housing for Everyone Grant winner is a well-deserved recognition of the organization’s exceptional work and its commitment to ending homelessness in the D.C. area. With the support of this grant, Friendship Place will be able to continue its vital mission and help even more individuals and families in need.
