The Ben Kinney Companies recently announced a donation of $400,000 to Lydia Place, a community-based non-profit based in Bellingham that provides housing and services to assist families and individuals caught in the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
Kinney, the founder of The Ben Kinney Companies, a collection of software, training and real estate companies with offices in the Barkley district, made the donation to help Lydia Place build or buy another property, according to a press release, under the condition that at least one unit could be used for a father with children looking for housing.
"Poverty and homelessness is a multigenerational issue — we must help stop the cycle of poverty, homelessness, hunger and abuse in our communities," Kinney said in the release.
