How to Help


You can provide the keys to escaping poverty in our community. In our work to help people escape poverty, many barriers often prevent people from achieving economic success. Lack of transportation, affordable housing, child care, and training to achieve living wage employment keep families in poverty. Your donation will provide support and resources to meet the highest identified needs in our community.

$25 allows us to create a roadmap to move a family from barely surviving to fully thriving.

$40 provides one month of transportation so families can get to work.

$100 provides scrubs, work boots or other attire required for people to get to work.

$500 fully furnishes an apartment for a family coming out of homelessness.

$1,000 pays for Career Connect training in sought after fields that pay a life-sustaining wage.

We need your help to break the cycle of poverty. Your generosity will transform the lives of families by catapulting them forward as they work toward self-sufficiency.
