At the start of 2017, friend of Pomegranate Nancy Nordhoff pledged a $37,000 challenge grant to support us in our critical transition period. That means we need to raise money from our supporters in order to match the pledged funding.
Pomegranate Center has applied our model to parks, neighborhoods, schools, and other public spaces. Now, we’re applying our model to one of the biggest crises facing our city and our country: homelessness and affordable housing.
