DePaul Annual Report 2022

Thanks to the Al Stroobants Foundation, C.E. Richardson Benevolent Foundation, Louise R. Lester Foundation, and the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund, DePaul was able to purchase new CPR equipment and supplies for three of our offices. The combined grants of nearly $25,000 provided needed training materials to support required in-person trainings for foster/adoptive families, sponsored residential providers, and staff, including new child/adult and infant CPR mannequins, hygienic face shields, cleaning supplies, therapeutic parenting books, two HEPA filters, and a UVC lamp to sanitize the air in training rooms. The funding will also support programs to provide necessary training and home studies at no cost to families or caregivers.

The Koserski family has been part of DePaul’s adoption and counseling programs for years. Their appreciation of DePaul’s support led them to give back. Through bake sales and fundraisers over the last two years, the Koserski’s business, Friendship Resort and Marina, has raised more than $4,500 for the organization.

The Marshall and Boardman families continue to be active supporters of DePaul, going above and beyond for the individuals we serve. In addition to the Marshalls’ generous personal donations to several of DePaul’s programs, they made the holidays special for our older foster youth. Together, the Marshalls and Boardmans ensured every youth in our Independent Living program received everything on their holiday wish list. | 13
