In southeastern Michigan, Judson Center provides adoption services, foster care, counseling, residential care and group homes for more than 1,800 people. Over its 25 years, the center's group homes for children with special needs had deteriorated. In a long-term strategic alliance with United Way, NFF provided a $150,000 capital grant and a $500,000 loan to bridge capital campaign pledges, to support the renovation and expansion project. Judson Center also received our Nonprofit Business Analysis (NBA) to prepare for a planned expansion of its services to children with autism spectrum disorders. With help from the NBA, Judson was better able to anticipate the new financial challenges of the expansion and transition into operating a center designed specifically for these services.
NFF works to create a strong, well-capitalized and durable nonprofit sector that connects money to mission effectively, supporting the highest aspirations and most generous impulses of people and communities.
