Help with Bills. Bernard is enrolled in OCWB's workforce program. He also is a contractor who provides maintenance support for one the City of Richmond buildings. The building was closed during the holidays, and Bernard missed five days of work which has impacted his earnings at the end of 2021. As a contractor, when he doesn't work during the holiday, he doesn't get paid. Bernard needs help catching up on some his bills: electricity and rent.

what happens after your donation

  1. 1

    A Supporter (that’s you!) connects with a story of hopeful progress out of crisis and chooses to support a local neighbor by purchasing their urgent need.

  2. 2

    The money from that purchase goes into a dedicated Stripe© Giving Wall account held by the partner organization whose client had the need met.

  3. 3

    Our partner organization’s Giving Wall lead speedily purchases the need and gives it directly to their client, or pays the bill directly.
