Oct 20 - Despite already living on a very lean income, "Val" had to leave her job for health reasons. By the time she found a new job, her electric was in "shut off status" and she would lose her service before her first paycheck. We were able to provide the "hand up" by paying the $232 arrears to prevent the shut-off and "Val" will be able to handle her bills going forward.
Oct 14 - "Jennifer" was released from the hospital into homelessness, 40 miles from where she was living prior to being hospitalized. Luckily, our local shelter had a bed for her. She's working hard to rebuild her life and needed an new ID to get access to housing and other social service benefits. We were able to renew her CDL license which not only gives her benefit access, it allows her to seek new employment as a bus driver...her pre-hospitalization occupation. Our donors have removed yet another barrier and yet again, someone's life has been changed for less that $100 ($94.50 to be exact).
Aug 15 - Dear Act in Faith Staff: Thank you so much for your kindness and help with my electric bill. It was a pleasure meeting with you and I appreciate the time you have all taken to help me during this difficult time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Sincerely, "Janet"
And to that we say: To Janet, it was an pleasure meeting you and an honor to assist.
To our Donors: Thank You!
