There was much to be thankful to our Lord for 2019
There are so many challenges facing all of us in 2020...
Our neighbors are struggling to keep their home and family together. In 2019, Public Citizens for Children and Youth came out with a study "Underwater: What's Sinking Families in Montgomery County." stated "A family earning $50,000 in Montgomery County can no longer to expect to cover its costs, struggles to pay its bills and keep its collective head above water." That is a scary statistic.
Many of the people seeking help are working poor making $30,000 or less and can't make ends meet. In many cases they don't fit the criteria to receive assistance from a county agency and they can't afford to pay the electric, water or sewer. Sometimes they missed a few days of work due to illness and now won't have a full paycheck to help pay the rent. They go to the food cupboard once a month and the food received isn't enough to get through the whole month.
This is our community struggling. Our neighbors trying to keep it together. The Hope and Help Network can't do this alone. We need your help. If everyone made a small donation to The Hope and Help Network, you will be helping your neighbor and their family keep a stable environment.
Your neighbors need your help. Your community needs your help in keeping it thriving.
Some of your neighbors need:
We have a Veteran who experienced a fire in his home and needs help to repair the damage. Homeowner's insurance only goes so far. We have an 83 year old woman who needs her roof repair. We have a single, working Mom with 3 children trying to catch up with the rent. She has a good Landlord but he needs his rent and can only keep carrying her for so long. We have a disable Mom with 2 kids who needs to move because her apartment has failed inspection 3 times. We have a disable Veteran in need of permanent housing. He is couch surfing but it is affecting his health. We have a man sleeping in his car because he can't afford the 3 months needed to get into an apartment.
