Your gift today will help our neighbors as the economic impact of COVID-19 continues to accrue in our community over the coming months.  A group of passionate individuals has come together to create a matching fund of $250,000 to amplify your gifts through April 30.

Together, your support will ensure local families can meet their basic needs – such as rent and utilities, clothing, household goods, beds, furniture, and appliances – while providing pathways to economic mobility through longer-term financial coaching and counseling.

A Word From the Individuals Who Are Providing Matching Funds
