Housing Assistance Corporation Recipient of Wells Fargo Grant

HYANNIS –Housing Assistance Corporation (HAC) was one of 18 nonprofits in Massachusetts that were awarded nearly $250,000 in grants from Wells Fargo in an effort to address social, economic and environmental challenges throughout the Commonwealth.

HAC’s $5,000 grant will go to Project Prevention, a program that prevents families from becoming homeless on Cape Cod and the Islands.

“This money will allow us to assist a larger number of families this year with avoiding a housing crisis,” said Cassi Danzl, HAC’s director of family and individual services. “Many families on the Cape are one crisis or missed paycheck away from homelessness. This money will help bridge that gap and allow those families to stay in stable housing.”

Of the 18 grants that Wells Fargo distributed, HAC was the only nonprofit on Cape Cod to receive one.

Robert D. Sullivan, first vice president of investments at Wells Fargo Advisors in Hyannis, Kristine K. Sullivan, a senior registered client associate at Wells Fargo Advisors in Hyannis, and Briana Curran, vice president of communications and community relations for Wells Fargo, presented a $5,000 check to Danzl and HAC’s Director of Community Relations Laura Reckford.

“HAC provides critical services to families on Cape Cod and the Islands at risk of homelessness so they can avoid entry or re-entry into the shelter system, and I’m so proud Wells Fargo can support this important work,” said Robert Sullivan. “Wells Fargo is committed to investing in the communities where its customers and employees live and work.”

To date, the company’s staff has volunteered 2,600 hours and donated nearly $1.5 million to nearly 85 nonprofits throughout the state.
