Shelters of Saratoga
To provide community assistance and meet the consistent need for stable, affordable housing for low-income residents of Saratoga Springs. To help shelter guests find long-term housing solutions.
Shelters of Saratoga (SOS) has developed a highly successful low-income housing model, which provides affordable apartment units as well support services to community members in need. Unfortunately, in terms of housing, need still outpaces inventory in the city.
Business for Good’s gift: long-term use of a 4,500 ft2 building at 1 Franklin Square, Saratoga Springs, will allow SOS to further expand the scope of their necessary work, providing more of our neighbors with the life-changing benefit of stable housing, as well as access to critical support services.
Since its inception, Wellspring has sought to meet the evolving need for domestic violence services in Saratoga County. Over the past forty years, they’ve continually added programming and staff, but they’ve been housed in the same, limited physical space.
To create a new home that would not only allow Wellspring to serve more people but simultaneously enhance services.
The new building will allow Wellspring to host more forums and more educational programs like job skills training, and financial literacy courses aimed at helping victims of domestic abuse grow their independence and self-sufficiency.
Since its inception, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) degree continuation rates for underrepresented students have been disproportionately low.
The SUSTAIN program was developed to specifically target and provide support and resources to first-generation students, female students, and students of color, pursuing STEM degrees.
Since its launch, the SUSTAIN program has seen STEM degree continuation rates for underrepresented students rise from roughly 30% to over 90%. The program has been incredibly successful and BFG™ support is going to allow it to move from its grant-funded pilot phase to consistent endowment funding, ensuring that these incredible results continue, helping to diversify the next generation of leaders in science and technology.
