Let’s Help 3 Families Move from the Shelter by Raising Funds for Utility “Packages”
Nothing’s better than seeing some of our shelter residents finding jobs, working, saving to move into a home of their own.
But, there’s a lot to a move – finding a new home, packing and moving, paying for first, last, and security deposit on rent. The cost of setting up a new home can often mean more time in a shelter for many people, even those who are working full time.
And, a simple thing such as the lack of additional funds to pay for the deposit or first months of utilities can keep a family in the shelter for another month or more.
We are raising funds to cover a “package” of utilities for 3 families for 2 months to help them move from the shelter into a home.
1 months’ worth of utilities per family may include:
• Heating oil: $76
• Electricity: $127
• Gas: $39
• Telephone: $35
• Internet if required for someone to work online from home: $39
Total for one family for one month: $316
Total for 2 months for one family would then cost $632
Total for three families: $1,896
Cost to purchase “packages” of utilities for 3 families for 2 months, so they can move from a shelter into a home: $1,896
