Family Promise of South Sarasota County recently received a $25,100 donation toward the capital campaign to purchase 10 cottages for its Pathways Home transitional housing project.
The funds for the effort dealing with affordable housing came from a $20,100 donation from 100 Women Who Care of Greater Sarasota with a matching grant of $5,000 from a foundation.
Family Promise of South Sarasota County raised about $1.3 million during a public appeal that started last September. Sarasota County, the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and the Community Foundation of Sarasota County each contributed $750,000 towards that effort, while the city of Venice contributed $50,000.
