A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped Rappahannock United Way change the story for more local households in need.
The Community Give raised over $5,000 with another $5,000 match for a total of $10,000!
These funds will replenish the Emergency Assistance Fund so that we can help more hard working households in our community who are facing temporary financial hardships. A one-time grant will help provide housing stability until they are back on their feet.
Over the past 5 years Rappahannock United Way's Emergency Assistance Fund has provided over $225,000 in financial assistance to more than 135 households.
Missing a couple of housing payments can be all it takes to start the spiral towards homelessness and poverty for hard-working families in these tough economic times. Together we can change the story by covering housing costs in their time of crisis.
