Grant funding will equip Chase Home with Little Green Light software. Chase Home Executive Director Meme Wheeler said their current system to track external communications is inadequate.

“The new system will make everything more centralized and ultimately allow our staff to work more efficiently,” she said.

According to Wheeler, the grant will cover the installation of the cloud-based service and the first year of its subscription.

Susan Bouchard, administrative director of the Agnes M. Lindsay Trust, said the trust pays tribute to Lindsay’s passion for “the education of poor and deserving students from rural communities and child welfare.”

In funding Chase Home, she said its mission and the expected outcomes from the grant made the nonprofit agency a good recipient.
“The mission of The Chase Home for Children is ‘helping at-risk troubled youth in crisis achieve success in life and opportunities as adults,’ which fits well within the mission of the Agnes M. Lindsay Trust,” she added.

Wheeler said the system will play a key role in helping the organization expand its reach.

“We can better keep track of our supporters and partners and when and how we communicate with them,” she said.

Founded in 1877, Chase Home is dedicated to providing supportive and restorative residential and family services to at-risk youth in a safe and nurturing environment.
