Basic Needs

Our investment in solutions for affordable housing saves money for everyone. Our funds help support permanent, supportive housing as a solution to long-term homelessness. When you compare the cost per day of supportive housing versus other, more high-intensity forms of care used by the homeless, supportive housing costs less.

Shelter $85
Permanent
supportive housing
$61

Youth Success

For every dollar spent on quality after school programing, $3.04 is saved on averted costs related to unemployment, crime and teen pregnancy.

Self- Sufficiency

Every dollar of our grant to AmeriCares Free Clinic in Norwalk will provide a $4.00 value, comprised of medical care, medications, lab tests and referrals to an uninsured population of over 830 patients in Norwalk.
