Connecting people to the resources they need to become financially stable.
The economic crisis caused by the pandemic has significantly impacted our community. Unemployment rates have soared, and the number of individuals struggling to make ends meet has increased substantially. Many are finding themselves in need of services that they never have before and don’t know where to turn.
