PLYMOUTH — HarborOne Bank announced that in its first full year of operation, the HarborOne Foundation made grants totaling more than $224,000 to 20 different organizations across the region.

Old Colony YMCA received a $25,000 grant to support the Family Stabilization program that provides wraparound services for families transitioning from homelessness to independent living. Old Colony Habitat for Humanity received a $15,000 grant to help construct a three-bedroom home for a deserving family in the community of Mansfield. South Shore Community Action Council received a $10,000 grant to support the operation of the Food Resources Program which provides emergency food assistance to 16,200 food insecure residents of all ages living in 25 towns within Plymouth County. Plymouth Habitat for Humanity received a $5,000 grant to help construct three affordable homes on land on Long Pond Road in Plymouth to provide affordable and accessible housing for military families.

“As we’ve grown and moved from a credit union to a bank, we determined that the creation of a foundation would be a substantial way to support the important work of nonprofits in communities across this region,” said Joseph Casey, president, HarborOne Bank and foundation director. “Our team works in the community, with nonprofit leaders, to determine where our funds are needed most to provide education that fuels economic success, opportunities for safe and affordable housing as well as basic human services.”

Funds have been used to help homeless individuals and families, support teen leadership programs, fight hunger and support job training, among other uses.
