BELLEFONTAINE, OH (October 5, 2020) – Westfield Legacy of Caring Program Lends a Hand to Local Communities
TCN Behavioral Health was nominated by CoverLink Insurance to receive a $10,000 grant from Westfield Insurance Foundation to help provide food and shelter to domestic violence victims and survivors as part of the Westfield Legacy of Caring program. At Westfield, it’s more than writing insurance policies, it’s about going above and beyond to help people and families grow and prosper. Lending a hand to friends and neighbors during times of need is at the core of the Westfield Insurance Foundation. Each year, Westfield independent insurance agents, like CoverLink Insurance, are invited to nominate a local nonprofit for the Legacy of Caring program. The program invests in communities and helps impact disaster recovery, family stability or safety.
“With the pandemic, Westfield’s Legacy of Caring program became even more relevant because it will take months, and maybe years, to return to the stability and security people and businesses, including nonprofits, enjoyed before a disaster happened,” said Matt Simon, President of CoverLink Insurance.
“Cash awards are rare and treasured,” said Debbie Brownlee, Program Manager, TCN Behavioral Health Domestic Violence Program. “The $10,000 award is a cash match for our federal grant which clears the path for $50,000 to be applied to the program’s needs. In other words, it has 5-fold leverage power! We were able to pay for a year’s rent for our beautiful and safe shelter and all the groceries needed to feed approximately 130 domestic violence victims for the year! Our sincere gratitude and thanks!”
This year, the Westfield Insurance Foundation donated more than a half million dollars to neighborhoods across the country. CoverLink is one of 50 agencies that nominated a nonprofit, TCN Behavioral Health, for the Westfield Legacy of Caring grant program. Awarding grants through the program is an extension of the fundamental role that insurance plays every day in stabilizing families, businesses and communities in times of uncertainty. Westfield is proud to work with their independent agents in distributing over $3 million since 2015.
“Together with our agency partners, Westfield continues to build on the strong commitment to caring that the founders of our company imagined,” said Ed Largent, Westfield President, CEO, board chair and Westfield Insurance Foundation chairman. “At Westfield, we want to give our communities everything we can: Protection, safety and support and our commitment doesn’t stop there.”

The guiding principle at independent insurance agency CoverLink is to always put people before policies… our associates care deeply about the clients we work to protect on a daily basis. So when Westfield Insurance created its Legacy of Caring program, the mission aligned seamlessly with the culture that’s existed at CoverLink since 1920. We’re honored when clients like Mark Muirhead say “they’re the type of individuals you can count on, and who honestly care about their clients from a business and personal standpoint.” It’s this caring approach that we feel is lacking too often in today’s world, in any industry. And we’re on a mission to change that, along with the help of like-minded organizations such as Westfield Insurance.
