Your Support Matters. Because of your generosity the families in our program have financial and emotional relief from the stress brought on by COVID-19! You helped us raise over $50,000 that will provide support for the families over the next few months so they won’t have to worry about managing financial demands while out of work. To date, we have provided financial support in excess of $15,000, including a partnership with Good Fellows Club who covered some rent and utility payments. We are currently assessing all financial needs required for May and look forward to sharing our progress in the next newsletter. We sincerely thank you for walking alongside us as we help each family toward long-term stability and economic mobility.
Want to make a difference in our community? Join us on Zoom to find out what it means to be a Family Liaison for the 2020-21 program year. With our Family Success Program, we provide each family with a ‘Family Liaison’ (a volunteer mentor) who works with the parent(s), one-on-one, during the year to help them obtain economic mobility. This is a 4-6 hour a month, hands on volunteer experience where you can truly see the impact of your commitment! We will be hosting information sessions via Zoom over the next few months for those interested in learning more about this amazing opportunity. Sign up to attend here.
