Share Some Love With Your Neighbors This February

February 1st, 2017

"I was truly in a situation that would have left me temporarily homeless. The assistance I received allowed me an opportunity to get back on my feet. My family is eternally grateful."     - "Danielle," Britepaths Financial Assistance Client
 
February is the Month of Love!

Did you know that 25% of renters in our community pay 50% or more of their hard-earned income toward rent? Any type of crisis can quickly send them spiraling toward hunger and homelessness.

 

Britepaths' Financial Assistance Fund helps them pay the rent, keep the heat on or make a major car repair so they can keep getting to work. So often, this support is a lifeline for them that staves off homelessness while they get back on their feet. Our Financial Literacy Program then follows up with them to offer budgeting help to ward off future crises. 

Can you Share Some Love with a local family who is struggling to pay their rent, keep the heat on or make vital car repairs so they can get to work and get back on their feet?

Our goal is to raise $10,000 in February to assist 33 more families than we are currently budgeted to serve. Our average grant is $300.

Each month, there are families we must turn away because we run out of funds. Please help us Share Some Love!
