The belief was that holding a steady job was enough to make ends meet.
But, in today’s market, where nearly a quarter of jobs pay low wages and offer no benefits, this is no longer a reality for millions of workers and their families. This is especially true for those that are homeless and are unable to be employed.
Many workers can not make ends meet on their wages alone. Mid- and low-wage workers find themselves with insufficient wages to cover basic family needs and do not typically have access to job-related benefits to supplement their earnings. They also do not have the ability to save and when an emergency happens they cannot cover those costs. Those that fall on hard times and are not currently employed are facing even harder challenges.
Our programs assist individuals and families - both working and non-working - access basics, such as food, rental assistance, hygiene products, and baby items.
