Summary

Homelessness in the US needs no explanation. It's an epidemic, especially in California. In 3 years of operation, we have helped over 100 individuals and families stay in their rented homes. These people are going thru a temporary financial emergency from which they can recover. We've found that it takes an average of $2,100 that makes the difference between staying in their home and avoidable eviction and/or homelessness.

Challenge

Over 78% of full-time workers in America live paycheck to paycheck. Most of these are renters. One unexpected financial emergency outside of their control can put them at risk of eviction and/or becoming homeless. Over 30% of our previous grantees have said they would have been homeless if not for our assistance.

Solution

Our applicants provide substantiation that they can get past the current crisis. By providing them a temporary subsidy, they are able to continue on their path, providing a roof over the heads of them and their families.

Long-Term Impact

Keeping people in their apartments is a benefit for everyone. Keeping people off the streets is a benefit for everyone. By providing financial education, which is the one condition for the grant, we add the long-term benefit of the individual's better relationship and management of their money. It also helps the children in the family. The long-term impact is priceless.
