The Aurora Project, which offers a haven for homeless women and their children, received $10,000 yesterday from the Charlotte R. Schmidlapp Fund.
The project will use the money toward the ongoing rehabilitation of a carriage house in North Toledo that will be used for residents ready for independent living.
The Charlotte Schmidlapp Fund was founded in 1908 by Jacob G. Schmidlapp in memory of his daughter, who was 19 when she died in an auto accident. It is managed by Fifth Third Bank.
