OUR GOAL:

Food, housing, and other basic needs are a key part of the equation for ending generational poverty. While systems change and upstream program design to address root causes is central in achieving our goal of ending generational poverty, basic human needs must always be met, and provide the building blocks for family stabilization.

Family Stabilization funds are meant to provide direct assistance to low-income families to stabilize a financial crisis to prevent homelessness, utility shut-offs, the use of pay day lenders, and/or abusive or unsafe environments. Administrative and programming expenses directly related to these funds should be included in the request to ensure proper outreach, navigation, and distribution.

2022-2023 Family Stabilization Funds will be invested to increase the success of anti-poverty work through low-barrier access to basic needs like:

  • Food pantries & food banks
  • Served hot meals
  • Mobile food delivery
  • Transportation for healthy food access
  • Rent and mortgage assistance
  • Utilities assistance
  • Direct client financial supports to secure and stabilize housing
  • Emergency and safe shelter
  • Transitional housing
  • Permanent supported housing
  • Permanent affordable housing
