Partnership Grant from First Service Bank and FHLB Dallas to Benefit At-Risk Youth Program

Media Event: 10:00 a.m., Thursday, September 22, 2016

CONWAY, Ark.--()--The Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas) and First Service Bank will award nonprofit organization Deliver Hope $16,000 in Partnership Grant Program (PGP) grant funds. Representatives from FHLB Dallas, First Service Bank, and Deliver Hope will attend a check presentation, which will take place Thursday, September 22 at 10:00 a.m. at Deliver Hope’s offices, 1403 Robinson Avenue, Conway, Arkansas 72034. The media is encouraged to attend.

Presented annually, PGP grants are awarded to community-based organizations. The grants may be used for research, organizational capacity-building, grant- and funding-application assistance, or contractual services.

Deliver Hope will use the funds for operating expenses to support one of its four initiatives, Hope House, which provides services to youth between the ages of 18 and 21 who have aged out of foster care. Established in 2013, Deliver Hope provides ministry and self-improvement services to at-risk youth between the ages of 13 and 21 in Faulkner County, Arkansas, through four programs: Juvenile Justice Ministry, Mentoring, Her Hope, and Hope House.

“The Partnership Grant Program is an excellent vehicle through which great change can occur,” said city of Conway Mayor Tab Townsell. “I applaud the initiative FHLB Dallas and First Service Bank have taken in facilitating the access of self-improvement services to the youth of Conway and the Faulkner County area.”
