Description

One-time financial grants are awarded to assist clients in paying utility bills, rent, and auto repair. The purpose of the grants are to help clients get through a temporary financial crisis. Clients are eligible for financial help from our agency if it appears that they will return to self-sufficiency in a short time.

Evidence of Program's Success

Many of our clients come to us when their water or power has been disconnected. By dealing directly with the water or power company, we get their service reconnected. Some clients can only pay a portion of their rent and we can provide the missing portion directly to the landlord. The help center recently facilitated auto repair for a local veteran who was living in a van. With our connections, the cost of the repair work was shared by two veterans organizations and the repair company donated their labor. Thanks to a 3rd organization, that veteran now has a subsidized apartment and will be starting a new job this month.

Evidence of Program's Success

We have many clients who live paycheck to paycheck. When disaster strikes in the form of an unexpected bill or adult children moving home with elderly parents, or any unforeseen expense, food is an expense that can cause huge stress. CVHC hopes to defray food costs by providing many staples which will allow clients to purchase only perishable items. Often our pantry receives toiletry donations which are distributed to clients to defray the cost of those items.
