Where are we going to live?
Those words can affect a family's entire trajectory in life. When a low- to mid-income family has lost housing, it's difficult for them to acquire funds to find suitable shelter, especially for those living on fixed incomes. Many of these displaced families are hardworking, drug free and honest people. In Carroll county, these families often end up in extended-stay motels or tents with no way to take care of the bare essentials like cooking, doing laundry or bathing. They have no place to call home. These families are often under served by other non-profit agencies, who may give them food items they can't cook without access to a kitchen. They can be denied access to monetary assistance because they make just above the threshold of financial requirements, while still not making enough to move out. The longer a family remains in this no-win cycle, the less likely they are to increase their level of education or financial capabilities. This in turn creates a drain on other non-profit, state and locally funded resources. COVID-19 has only made this problem worse in our community. One Body, Many Members and Bakery27 Cafe/Little Hawaiian have partnered with others to raise funds to aid as many families as possible in finding their own place to call home.
