Because of your generosity the families in our program had financial and emotional relief from the stress brought on by COVID-19! You helped us raise over $50,000 that provided support for the families over 4 months so they didn’t have to worry about managing financial demands while out of work.
Families were provided with over $7,500 in food support through food gift cards and groceries/meals delivered.
$33,000+ was provided in rent and utility assistance to prevent families from facing eviction or utility shut-offs.
Over $4,000 provided for connectivity – internet service and/or phone bills.
$4,500+ provided for various other needs including childcare, insurance and car payments.

“I have so much deep appreciation for everyone in this organization, and y’all have helped me in every way possible. I am using the tools that I’ve gained from this moving forward, and I have confidence in my ability to maintain stability for my family from here out, but there’s this new adjustment happening [COVID-19]. While the world is in crisis, what was working for me before this happened isn’t gonna work for me now so I have to figure out something else, but I know how to do that, and I am working on it. Thanks again, Michelle”
