If everybody understood some statistics they'd never gamble in a casino. Here's a couple of my favorites.... How many people need to be in a room until you have at least a 50-50 change that two will have the same birthday? The answer is 23....completely non-intuitive.

I'm curious what the "prior misconduct" is that could scare Denny enough to agree to fork over more than $3 million. Really does go to show that sleazebaggery in politics knows no bounds, party or otherwise.

Madonna House in Quincy awarded Emergency Solutions Grant

2 years, 7 months ago by Paige Traeder

The grant will be used to develop a computer library, organize life skills groups, create working relations with local housing options and maintain follow-up services for past and incoming residents

The Madonna House in Quincy has been awarded an Emergency Solutions Grant from the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity aimed at homelessness prevention.

"The opportunity provided through this grant is so important to our mission at the Madonna House to provide our residents with the life skills they need in order to change their lives," says Joanne Dedert, Interim Executive Director. "We could not be happier to receive the DCEO grant and are excited to see it put into action."

The grant will be used to develop a computer library, organize life skills groups, create working relations with local housing options and maintain follow-up services for past and incoming residents. The development of a computer library will allow residents to complete job searches and build resumes, with a goal of 80% of residents having a resume. Through life skills groups, residents will be able to focus on parenting, personal self-care, and employment.

Through the use of the DCEO grant, these goals will allow for the overall long-term goal of reducing homelessness. By providing alternative housing options and education on life and employment skills, the residents will be able to work towards their own goals of self-sufficiency.

The Madonna House is a homeless shelter for pregnant women and women with children.
