Melanie has been staying at CARITAS Women's Emergency Shelter since the beginning of May. While here, she's started working so that she can catch up on bills and begin applying for housing. Melanie has been very driven and focused on her goals and moving forward. However, she has a phone bill that she has been unable to catch up on. She relies on her phone for work and for communication with her case managers and landlords. Your assistance will allow her to pay this bill before her phone gets cut off, as well as to continue to focus on working and saving for housing.

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.
