Sherwin-Williams Foundation Awards Grant to At-risk Youth Organization

After a national competition, The Sherwin-Williams Co. has awarded its annual signature grant to Guidestone (transforming from Berea Children’s Home and Family Services). The $50,000 grant will enable Guidestone to expand its PREP program, an integrated treatment approach that helps teenagers battling substance-abuse and mental-health challenges “Step Towards Sobriety.”

“The Sherwin-Williams Foundation grant will help us expand and serve over 3,500 annually by providing comprehensive treatment in 30 community-based programs,” says Richard Frank, president and CEO of Guidestone. “The expansion of mental-health and substance-abuse treatment will further Guidestone’s ability to help the children we serve be healthy, thoughtful and contributing adults.”

“The Sherwin-Williams Foundation is very pleased to support the inspirational work of Guidestone,” says Chris Connor, chairman and CEO of The Sherwin-Williams Co. “Their mission of reaching out to children shows how a public-private partnership can offer a helping hand to teenagers in need. Over our 147-year history, Sherwin-Williams has always reached out to the communities where we do business. The driving force of the Sherwin-Williams Foundation is our commitment to enhancing education and children’s health and safety.”
