Making a Difference

Project Pay It Forward

The Future Looks Bright

A program has been developed to assist individuals who are undergoing residential treatment to pay for their mortgage/rent and utilities. The program is designed to help individuals focus on their recovery without having to worry about their financial responsibilities. The program provides financial assistance to eligible participants based on their income and needs.

To qualify for the program, individuals must be undergoing residential treatment for a mental health or substance abuse disorder. They must also be the primary payer of their mortgage/rent and utility bills. Eligible participants will be provided with financial assistance to help cover these expenses for the duration of their treatment.

This program is designed to alleviate financial stress and allow individuals to focus on their recovery. It is hoped that this program will encourage more individuals to seek residential treatment for mental health and substance abuse disorders.

To apply for the program, individuals must complete an application and provide documentation of their income and bills. Once their application has been reviewed and approved, they will receive financial assistance to help cover their mortgage and utility bills while they are in treatment.

Hand Up Project

Making Change Possible

The "Hand Up" program is a community-based initiative that provides support and assistance to individuals who are facing economic or social barriers that prevent them from achieving their goals. The program aims to empower individuals by providing them with the resources and tools they need to change their trajectory in life.

One of the key services offered by the "Hand Up" program is assistance with obtaining essential documents such as a driver's license, personal identification, birth certificates, and social security cards. These documents are often required for employment, housing, and accessing other services, but can be difficult and expensive to obtain for people who are facing financial hardship or other challenges.

In addition to assistance with obtaining essential documents, the "Hand Up" program also recognizes the importance of reliable transportation, such as a bus pass or even a bicycle, in helping individuals achieve their goals. For many people, lack of access to transportation can be a significant barrier to employment, education, and accessing essential services.

Through the "Hand Up" program, eligible individuals can receive financial assistance to cover the costs associated with obtaining these documents, such as application fees and transportation costs. In addition, the program provides guidance and support to help individuals navigate the often complex process of obtaining these documents.
