The Foundation understands that good people can catch a bad break sometimes. We invest in programs that provide emergency temporary housing, clothing and food along with utility and rental assistance. These programs meet basic life needs for the “working poor” or recently unemployed who have fallen on hard times and are facing financial emergencies.
As opposed to a handout, this “hand up” approach is intended to help individuals and families get back onto the path of self-sufficiency. It’s critical for organizations in this sector to partner across the continuum of care to ensure their clients achieve this goal.
