smdp_hoh_updated_logoThe St. Martin de Porres Grant Challenge started off with a bang.  In just over 48 hours, St. Martin de Porres House of Hope raised nearly $1,200.  The contributions have come in all shapes and sizes, but each dollar will be matched during the grant challenge period.  The grant challenge will run until May 15, 2017.

At the end of the challenge Holly Geraci and her husband, Attorney Peter Francis Geraci, will match all donations up to $10,000 during the grant challenge period.  St. Martin de Porres was selected due to their work helping women suffering from substance abuse problems.  According to St. Martin de Porres’s site, their mission is to Create “a safe, healing community where women and their children recover from substance abuse, address trauma and deal with mental illness.”
