Since its inception in 1995, more than 50,000 households have been assisted through ShelterNet. It takes at little as $300 to keep a family from losing their home, but as much as $3000 to rehouse them. Humanities Foundation’s ShelterNet helps families and individuals who have suffered a crisis or setback by providing emergency financial assistance to enable them to stay in their homes or to prevent the loss of essential utility services such as gas, power, or water.
Additionally, ShelterNet has been awarded approximately $2,500,000.00 from the Cares Act emergency fund to provide financial assistance grants to help households negatively impacted by the pandemic.
ShelterNet depends on contributions from members of the community to support our efforts to keep our neighbors in their homes. To date over 50,000 people have been assisted.
Every single donation has an immediate impact – donations made today help prevent a family from becoming homeless or losing their utility service tomorrow.
