Non-profit groups that provide services to disadvantaged children, elderly residents and neighborhoods are among recipients of $631,000 in grants announced by the Morris Goldseker Foundation of Maryland Inc.

The foundation awarded a $150,000, two-year start-up grant to the Resource Center for Neighborhoods.

As part of its mission, the center, sponsored by the Citizens Planning and Housing Association, seeks to educate the broader community about pertinent issues affecting Baltimore neighborhoods.

The Baltimore Educational Scholarship Trust, which raises private funding for scholarships for black students, was awarded a two-year $125,000 grant.

Advocates for Children and Youth was awarded a two-year $120,000 grant to continue its Child Watch initiative and to expand its funding base. The group was founded in 1987 to create support for programs for disadvantaged children.

"For many of these grantees, we are providing funding early in their development," said Dr. Timothy D. Armbruster, foundation president. "This kind of support, which allows time to develop programs and attract stable longer-term financial resources, is critical to these organizations' strength and viability."

The foundation also awarded a $55,000 challenge grant to the Baltimore Area Labor-Management Committee, $50,000 to the CollegeBound Foundation, $90,000 to the Metropolitan Education Coalition, $20,000 to the South East Senior Housing Initiative and $21,300 to the Family Violence Project.

The foundation is named for Morris Goldseker, a city landlord who died in 1973. In 1976, the foundation began providing grants to private non-profit organizations and institutions.
