Beck Institute Receives $270,000 to Help Disadvantaged


Fordham’s Beck Institute on Religion and Poverty has received funding to support a program that helps domestic violence survivors, veterans, and those who have been homeless or formerly incarcerated. The program builds on the success of a similar program for the homeless run by Catholic Charities since 1989.

The Trinity Foundation gave $100,000. Kathy and Brian MacLean, both FCRH ’75, are contributing $170,000. The gifts will allow Fordham to continue community development with training and support for programs known as Coming Home, Living Well, and Homecoming, said Anita Lightburn (pictured above), EdD, director of the Beck Institute and a professor in the Graduate School of Social Service (GSS).
