Help provide micro grants to the homeless

Peer councils of homeless individuals prioritize requests for transportation, skills training, certification renewals, and other basic needs that aren’t easily accommodated by traditional service organizations. $10, $25, or $50 can help eliminate an obstacle that would just be a nuisance for most. Help us provide this opportunity for empowerment, community, and accountability.

“Thank you for your help in knocking down a past due rent; this will give me a chance to get on Section 8 housing.  It was a major burden taken off my mind. -Carolyn, grant recipient

    A 501(c)(3) public charity

We have no residency requirements, which often disqualifies people without valid ID from receiving assistance.

We work directly within the homeless community eliminating their need for additional transportation.

We accept recommendations for grant recipients from a council of recipient peers. Participation in the councils provides an opportunity for a rekindling of responsibility–-and accountability–-and a sense of community.

Our grants are available for an individual’s specific needs that are difficult to accommodate at traditional service organizations.
