Keeping A Roof Over Head: Our Winter 2019 Emergency Assistance
About this Cause
Do you know that one in six families in Greater Boston are a single paycheck away from financial crisis? An illness, an injury, any emergency expense, is enough to trigger a cascade of crises that ends in eviction and homelessness. In 2016, the most recent year for which there are statistics, over 2,700 families in Suffolk County were evicted. And many more were never reported. LAH’s emergency grants stop the crisis before it gets that far. Last year, LAH helped stop the eviction of over 260 Boston-area families faced with unexpected crises and expenses. LAH provides one-time grants that keep these families in their homes. We receive requests averaging over $20,000 each month for emergency financial assistance, and the demand for help is only increasing. 100% of your donation will help avert disasters like these. Will you help us support those in need and make a donation to Lend A Hand Society?
