Magdalene St. Louis receives grant from Trinity Wall Street

Magdalene St. Louis receives grant from Trinity Wall Street

From Episcopal News Service story:

Magdalene St. Louis has been named a recipient of a $25,000 “Wildcard Grant” from the Grants Program of Trinity Wall Street.

Magdalene St. Louis helps women who have survived lives of prostitution, trafficking, abuse, addiction and life on the streets by providing a community where they can recover and rebuild their lives. The program offers two years of housing, support and education at no cost. Based on the highly successful Magdalene/Thistle Farms program in Nashville, Magdalene St. Louis is scheduled to open its first house later this year.

This is the first year Trinity is offering Wildcard Grants, which are designed to be “resources for innovative leaders.” According to the grant description, “these grants seek to reward beyond-the-bell-curve work that inspires positive transformation of people and, by extension, societies. The one-time award will be offered to organizations whose leaders have a ‘wow’ idea that lacks only money to help get it off the ground.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
