What We Do
You can only afford to pay ONE: Your child’s lunch or the electric bill. What would you choose? Who would you turn to?
Unexpected emergencies can make it impossible to pay for basic needs, forcing a family to choose between paying routine bills like utilities – or buying life’s basic necessities, like food and life-saving medication.
What is an Emergency?

- Job loss
