The Hyperion Bank Community Chest Fund is proud to announce a $500 Grant has been awarded to the Council of Spanish Speaking Organization, Inc. (Concilio), 705-09 N. Franklin Street in Philadelphia. The Grant, requested by Concilio will help fund their 'Raise the Roof' campaign.

Joanna Otero-Cruz, Executive Director of Concilio, said the funds would be used for the roof repairs needed at Concilio. "We are elated to receive financial support from the Community Chest Fund especially during such challenging economic times. With the support of the Community Chest Fund; Concilio will be able to make repairs to our roof that is extremely debilitated and antiquated, "said Otero-Cruz.

According to Suzanne Salsbury-Mooney, President & CEO of the Community Chest Fund, "Concilio provides a wide breadth of services to the Latino community in our service area and we felt it was vital to assist them in keeping their building operable".

Concilio was started in 1962 by a group of Latino leaders concerned with the economic, social and political issues facing the growing Latino community of the City of Philadelphia. Today the agency is a human service organization that provides a network of family support services to vulnerable families in Eastern North and Northeast Philadelphia.
