The Santa Monica-based Liberty Hill Foundation has awarded $735,000 to community organizations in the county that support housing, homeless and poverty issues.

Since 1976, Liberty Hill Foundation has given nearly $27 million to grass-roots community organizations in the county.

“Liberty Hill’s investment this summer of nearly three-quarters of a million dollars is a reflection of our willingness to invest significant resources in expanding prosperity and equality in Southern California,” said Torie Osborn, Liberty Hill executive director. Information,
