Business briefs: Mosaic donates to Foundry Home – Carlsbad Current Argus
Mosaic recognized for efforts to strengthen Carlsbad through community partnerships
The Mosaic Company was recognized by United Way Director Linda Dodd last week as one of the most charitable organizations in the county for its work in supporting local organizations and programs that are strengthening our communities.
Mosaic demonstrated its commitment to strengthen our community as they announced two new partnerships in Carlsbad. Carlsbad Lifehouse and Cavern City & Lea Co. Child Advocacy Centers – Foundry Home both received $10,000 in funding for their work in the community.
“Mosaic is honored to be recognized for our support of local organizations and programming,” said Paul Gill, Mosaic’s General Manager – Carlsbad. “We are proud to continue our support to make the communities where our employees work, live and raise families stronger and are excited to share news of two new partnerships with Carlsbad Lifehouse and Foundry Home.”
The Carlsbad Lifehouse’s mission is to help recovering addicts successfully transition from an intensive rehab program to a healthy, sustainable, sober life. They have housing facilities for men and women. Mosaic’s $10,000 funding will help the organization make necessary upgrades to ensure the success and the safety of our employees and our patients at their new facility at 1900 Westridge. This facility will house an expanded residential treatment program and, in the future, a detox program.
Cavern City & Lea Co. Child Advocacy Centers – Foundry Home
Foundry Home offers immediate shelter and support for the youth of our community and surrounding areas experiencing homelessness, have run away from home, or are victims of human trafficking. It is their mission to provide safety and resources to youth allowing them to reunify with loved ones or transition into a longer-term program that will continue to provide for their needs.
Mosaic’s $10,000 funding will support for the new youth shelter in their newly acquired building. These upgrades will help create a safe space for youth during their transition into longer-term programs that continue to provide for their needs.
“We are proud to support Carlsbad Lifehouse and Foundry Home in their important work to support vulnerable members of our community,” said Tonk Chester, Mosaic’s Human Resource Manager – Carlsbad.
Carlsbad Mayor, Dale Janway, and the City Administrator, Assistant City Administrator and Representative Cathrynn Brown were all present during the award ceremony.
“Mosaic is the very definition of an excellent community partner. The company’s support for the Lifehouse program and the Child Advocacy Center/Foundry Home really shows a deep commitment to this community. These are two exceptional programs that are providing opportunities.”
