(May 24, 2017 – Naples, FL) The Angel Fund held at the Community Foundation of Collier County recently awarded Residential Options of Florida (ROOF) with a $10,000 grant. The Angel Fund is dedicated to providing support for community-based human services and educational services in Collier County.

This award will support Residential Options of Florida in developing and overseeing the Collier County Housing Network.

“Residential Options of Florida is grateful for the Community Foundation’s support,” states Sheryl Soukup, executive director of ROOF. “Collier County is home to approximately 2,000 residents with developmental disabilities. This project will help people with disabilities and their family members understand local affordable housing options and plan for the future.”
