Rent Security Deposit Assistance Program

A young mother’s financial struggles began when her 3-month old infant had heart surgery. She lost her job when she had to stay home to care for the infant. At that point, she also lost her housing. Thanks to FUMC’s assistance, she was able to avoid the homeless shelter and move to her own apartment. Her new housing is now secure and she is back at work.

 

Your gifts to the church and your special donations to RSDAP have allowed us to make one-time grants of up to $300 toward a security deposit so members of our community, like the young mother we helped, can move to housing that they can afford. 

 

The fund is now nearly depleted. We are now turning away requests from community advocates desperate to cobble together security deposit funds for needy individuals and families.

 You can help.

 By making a pledge commitment for twice-yearly giving, club members are helping to sustain this mission with a consistent source of funding. Since its inception last year, 14 members have joined the Club. 

 

OTHER WAYS TO HELP

Give at the special collection during Worship on Sunday, September 10th.

 

Make a donation to the program. Simply write a check to FUMC with RSDAP in the memo line.

 

Whenever you are paying your rent or mortgage, consider writing a check for RSDAP each month.

 

Or add $10 or more to your monthly pledge, and allocate it to RSDAP. Ask the church office how.
