Donor Spotlight: James P. & Brenda S. Grusecki Family Foundation

The James P. and Brenda S. Grusecki Family Foundation is committed to supporting education, the arts, housing, and other vital social services. Since its founding in 2002, the foundation has had a transformative impact on organizations servicing the Chicago area.

In 2015, the Grusecki Family Foundation made its first gift to Thresholds in support of the Veterans Project. The Veterans Project integrates Thresholds’ award-winning, evidence-based practices and strategic partnerships into a comprehensive program designed specifically for U.S. military veterans experiencing PTSD, depression, and other mental illnesses. Veterans Project staff represent every branch of service and include individuals in recovery from mental illness. Examples of the program’s services include case management, rapid and long-term housing support, employment and education preparation, trauma therapy, and substance use treatment. In 2010, the Veterans Project launched the Women Veterans Health Initiative, which provides a range of services tailored to the unique needs of the women veteran population.

We are excited to highlight The James P. and Brenda S. Grusecki Family Foundation this month. Over the past three years, they have generously increased their giving to Thresholds, contributing $80,000 to the Veterans Project. We are grateful for their consistent support and for their commitment to our nation’s brave service members.
