WGC Emergency Response Network Request - $1,000
The Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County has received the following request to help with an immediate need in the community through our Emergency Response Network (ERN) – can you lend a hand?
Our partners at the Community Action Council are requesting $1,000 in assistance for a client with disabilities facing eviction from a one bedroom handicap apartment.
The client has been consistently employed for 11 years working in a warehouse, and has been able to sustain paying her rent and bills. However, she recently faced a health set-back and was out of work for three months. She did not have any income during this time which led to her inability to pay her rent - she has been constantly behind since then, which has added late and court filing fees to her debt.
This woman currently has two eviction judgments against her. The total amount she owes her landlord is $2,712.94. The Community Action Council is going to assist her but she must come up with the difference before they can release their funds.
On behalf of our partners at the Community Action Council of Howard County we are asking for $1,000 from the Emergency Response Network to help to put toward the overall cost of her bills. Can you lend a hand?
WGC will pool your contributions and send the funds directly to the nonprofit. We will only accept enough funds to cover this request.
The WGC Emergency Response Network was created to provide an opportunity for WGC donors to directly help women in need. When our nonprofit partners are working with a woman or girl with an immediate need, they submit a request to the WGC.
Emergency Response Network Requests:
- Come from one of our pre-determined nonprofit partners.
- Are for immediate needs up to $1,000.
- Provide assistance to women and girls in Howard County.
Thank you for your support of women and girls in our community through the WGC’s Emergency Response Network (ERN). We are making a bigger difference together than we might otherwise be able to alone – the reason for our giving circle!
