Wayside Awarded MetroWest Health Foundation Grants
Wayside is pleased to announce that we have been awarded two grants from the MetroWest Health Foundation: Meeting the Mental Health Needs of LGBTQ+ Youthand Supporting, Increasing and Retaining Diverse and Culturally Competent Staff.
Throughout the past year, Wayside has worked with OUT MetroWest to provide clinical resources and support at their weekly group meetings. This grant will not only serve to strengthen our partnership with OUT MetroWest, but it will also enable Wayside to support more LGBTQ+ children, young adults and their families in our community!
The Foundation also awarded Wayside a grant to “Support, Increase & Retain Diverse & Culturally Competent Staff.” As a human services organization, we understand the importance of having a diverse and culturally competent staff to reflect the clients and communities in which we work. Wayside staff ranks the agency in the 88th percentile of agencies nationally in staff satisfaction with our commitment to diversity. However, there is no easy task in ensuring equality in the workplace, but with the help of this grant, we are taking the steps necessary to shape our organization into a committed leader in the field for diversity and inclusion.
