The Flavors of Hope (FOH) program is one of the many partnerships that can be found through Tracy Family Resource Center (CPFSJ). CPFSJ is a non-profit organization that provides tools, resources and connections through partnerships to help families improve their quality of life.
All women to be considered for a FOH grant must be interviewed by the staff at Community Partnership for Families of San Joaquin (CPFSJ). A recommendation must come from CPFSJ first, before SMI board votes to approve or not approve a grant. CPFSJ staff will inform women of other potential resources to help them recover from their crisis before a FOH grant is considered. The SMI board prayerfully considers the circumstance of each recommended applicant prior to awarding a grant.

The goal of the Flavors of Hope program is to provide financial support to local women who may be in a short-term crisis. Consideration will be given to applicants based on the following goals of the grant program:
- Support local women who may be in a short-term crisis.
- Provide financial assistance (but not limited to) for such things as housing needs, transportation costs, childcare, meal vouchers, healthcare needs, etc.
- Form partnerships with other non-profit groups in our community who also help women and can assist in identifying women who may qualify for a Flavors of Hope grant.
- Have a sound accountability plan for administering grants.
It is the desire of SMI, through this program, to provide a minimum of (1) (but not limited to) grant(s) of $250.00 to $500.00 annually to women who meet the criteria of the Flavors of Hope program. The amount of the grant awarded as approved by the Board of Directors of SMI, will be paid directly to the organization or business in which the service is given to the woman in crisis. When requested by SMI, the grant recipient and/or the business shall provide financial accountability to SMI for any payments of the service and/or item given to the grant recipient.
Women applying for a grant must reside in San Joaquin County. Of note: SMI will review all applications in the order that they are received and grants will be awarded given funds are available. Only one grant will be given to any one person in a calendar year, and no more than (2) grants given to any one person and/or household.
