Who it helps
Are you ready to change your life?
Maybe you don’t qualify for government assistance but it’s still hard to cover your expenses. It’s tough to know where to turn. We can help.
What we do
We are not a government agency.
We’re a private program looking to build up our community. If you qualify, we may cover the cost of childcare, gas, transportation, housing, job training, and education.
This initiative is not one-size-fits-all. Our intake process will help determine your needs and identify the ways you can benefit from the program.
