With the support of our donors, we are here to remove some of the barriers and help clear the path forward. Bus tokens to get to work or an interview, resume/job search, pre-employment expenses, cell phone, security deposit, clothing -all are things that many of us take for granted - yet all are things that are be huge hurdles for those on the road to empowerment.

Oct 20 - Despite already living on a very lean income, "Val" had to leave her job for health reasons. By the time she found a new job, her electric was in "shut off status" and she would lose her service before her first paycheck. We were able to provide the "hand up" by paying the $232 arrears to prevent the shut-off and "Val" will be able to handle her bills going forward.
