Support for our Emergency Financial
Forecast for emergency assistance
CG funds would be used only to assist local families with
emergency needs. A $25,000 grant would stabilize and
prevent eviction for an estimated 100 families.
Project success will be measured by the # and % of
families assisted who are able to remain in their
homes through their crises.

Growing need in our community
NFCC income has increased 28%, but
Requests have increased 45%
The recession is affecting more local
families including many who were middle
class and NFCC volunteers and donors.
All forecasts are that the depressed
economy will not recover for another 18+ months. More and
more families will be needing help at a time when fewer and
fewer are able to donate funds.
