Funds for Futures – Emergency Assistance Program

Funds for Futures Emergency Fund

Sometimes a little goes a long way.

For a family living in poverty, a small set back can easily become a crisis—job loss, illness, eviction—the Funds for Futures program gives small amounts that can turn a bad situation into a stepping stone to a brighter future.

The gift of a week’s groceries, bus fares or work clothes can make a huge difference to families in our counseling support programs if a calamity falls their way. The amounts are small but the impact is huge.

Families know that they are cared for and that we are ready and willing to give them a hand through difficulty. Through these small gifts at crucial times families are able to bridge the gaps and move on to self-sufficiency with confidence.
