Elizabeth Hill's Fundraiser:

Bristol Task Group to End Family Homelessness

THE STORY:

It takes $1,000 on average to keep a family from becoming homeless. Sometimes its a relatively small thing that pushes a family into homelessness. Parents are working, but then a car needs to be repaired and there's no money for it, so they can't get to work. Or they need to find a new apartment and have enough money to pay for monthly rent, but no money for the initial security deposit.

This small amount of funding can prevent families from needing to go into shelters, sleep in other people's living rooms or having to resort to sleeping in the woods or on the streets.

Special incentive --- If we raise $7,500 by the end of June, we can access matching funds that will make $15,000 available to families in our community. This means we'll be able to help 15 families keep their heads up and hearts open.

Please join us in helping keep families healthy and safe!
