Our Impact

We help a demographic no one else helps: hard-working, responsible people who, if they are the average working person in America, are living paycheck-to-paycheck, have less than $1,000 in savings, and are likely spending more than 30% of their income on rent. In many cases, their income is too high to qualify for government or other program assistance.


Success Stories

There are many examples of the responsible residents we have helped; people who were hit with a sudden financial emergency and with nowhere else to turn, needed a little help to avoid eviction and stay in their apartments.

I am so thankful...

Did you know?

The average monthly expenses for American households are $5,111, according to the most recent Consumer Expenditure Survey from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

Where does all that money go? For the typical person, it covers quite a few different things from major costs like payments to their mortgage lender and groceries to smaller expenses like apparel.

By peeking into the national average budget for all these categories, we can get a better idea of where people spend the most and how our own spending habits compare.
