CICOA Receives $10,000 from Glick Philanthropies to Support Transportation

Written by

CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions has received a grant of $10,000 from the Glick Community Relief Fund, a grant program of Glick Philanthropies. Funding will support CICOA’s Way2Go transportation service, providing reliable, affordable transportation to help older adults maintain their health and independence while aging in place in their homes. CICOA supports residents and neighbors of several apartment communities managed by the Gene B. Glick Company.

The Glick Community Relief Fund was created in 2020 to help organizations meet operational challenges in response to the increased demand for services brought on by COVID-19. The grant program continued in 2021 to increase access to basic need services for Glick residents and the broader community.

CICOA was nominated for the grant by service coordinators at Carriage House Glendale and Gardens of Greenbriar, apartment communities managed by the Gene B. Glick Company for the Glick Community Relief Fund. 

“CICOA is very appreciative of the relationship we have with the Glick Company and their mission to meet the basic needs of our most vulnerable neighbors,” said Tauhric Brown, CICOA president and CEO. “We’re proud to support these organizations through the Glick Community Relief Fund so they can continue to build community and create opportunity,” said David Barrett, vice chair, president and CEO of the Glick Family Foundation.
