Duet: Partners In Health & Aging has received a $75,000 grant from The Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation. The grant will go toward supporting Duet’s health and well-being services for homebound adults, family caregivers, grandparents raising grandchildren, and faith communities.
“This grant from The Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation will help Duet to provide free-of-charge health and aging services to those in our local community who need it most,” said Gordon Sims, director of development for Duet. “Through grants like this one, Duet is able to connect homebound adults with volunteers who provide rides to the grocery store and doctor’s appointments; provide support groups for caregivers and grandparents raising grandchildren; and help to foster health programs in faith communities. Duet is grateful for the support of the foundation and will use the funds to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve on a daily basis.”
A Phoenix area nonprofit since 1981, Duet recently moved into a new office space, located at 10000 N. 31st Ave, Suite D200, Phoenix, AZ 85051. An open house and ribbon cutting at Duet’s new office is being planned for March 1.
