What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In 2011, more than 11,000 families were cut off from Public Assistance, leaving them to rely on organizations such as The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust. The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust is now serving a large percentage of these individuals, and it is more a major priority that we purchase a building to continue to meet the needs of families and individuals. Our Human Services program rose 29%. We urgently need more supporters to accommodate more families and individuals.

How will this project solve this problem?

The grant will provide resources needed to remove any barriers by providing job training, skill training and other placement services to help our clients to become self-sufficient and self-reliant. More financial education training is needy to help individuals budget their income in these tough economic times. More job training and educational training is also need to help them individuals to seek better careers in order to become self-sufficient and self-reliant.

Potential Long Term Impact

The grant will help support us and increase the number of new clients in need of food assistance and give these individuals the opportunity to receive assistance through our program. The grant will improve our infrastructure and expand the underlying framework of our organization and program. The program will make available job training, counseling, placement services including job readiness, literacy training and skill training.
