Hubbell-Waterman Foundation,” said Executive Director Elaine Winter, Ed.D. “This grant will
go a long way toward not only providing food, shelter and services for the hundreds of men,
women and children who will come through our doors this year, but also will help us provide
sustained help in the form of counseling, case management, advocacy and spiritual guidance.”
