When $100 Makes the Difference
We distribute $100 Grants to people with unmet needs. Our Recipients have been prescreened by FirstLink so we know there are no other resources in town which can help them.
Our most common requests are cell phone minutes, transportation needs, help with utilities, and various unmet needs such as boots for work, or the fee to get an ID.
"Yes I am a single mother and its very stressful, and this means the world to myself and daughter."

Communal Fund Housing Grant
We distribute one-time $500 housing grants. This fund began in November of 2018. As of May 2019 we have distributed 4 grants. We are currently seeking funding so we can increase this to a minimum of one grant per month. The Housing Grant recipients have been prescreened through the CARES central intake process at SENDCAA or Lakes and Prairies. Our $500 is the last piece needed to meet the recipient’s immediate housing need. Our grants can be used for back rent/mortgage, current rent /mortgage (to prevent getting behind), or for first month/deposit to obtain housing.
