Family Promise Orange County (FPOC), a non-profit organization that helps homeless families, has received a $10,000 grant from the MassMutual Foundation as part of a national Community Service Award (CSA) program. FPOC is one of thirty-two organizations nationally to receive an award. The MassMutual Foundation made the grant as a tribute to the volunteer efforts of Bernd Steinebrunner, a MassMutual agent with MassMutual Greater Pacific in Costa Mesa, CA.
“We are stronger when we come together as a community, and our Community Service Awards program recognizes a group of MassMutual financial professionals who embody this spirit, working with members of their respective neighborhoods, towns and cities, helping nonprofits with which they are involved grow and thrive,” said Dennis Duquette, Head of MassMutual Community Responsibility and President of the MassMutual Foundation. “We are proud of the time and energy Bernd dedicates to better his community and delighted to support the great work MassMutual financial professionals do with organizations across the country.”
FPOC’s mission is to help families experiencing homelessness achieve housing stability, through its housing programs, meals, case management, and hospitality.
This grant will help us keep children from having to sleep in a car because of unforeseen circumstances in their families’ lives.
Bernd Steinebrunner has been with MassMutual Greater Pacific for 11 years. He has been committed to FPOC since 2012 and has dedicated countless hours of time and talent to help the organization grow and flourish.
“I am very pleased that my dedication to FPOC has been recognized by the MassMutual Foundation,” said Bernd. “This grant will provide much needed funding to continue supporting our community by providing support to the less fortunate. The families we are helping need just a little push to prevent them from being homeless and become self-sufficient again. They are people like you and me who had a sickness, divorce, loss of job, or other unforeseen circumstances and they are motivated to get back on their feet.”
