VOA Interview with Rose Powers at StreetLight

*** WE NEED YOUR HELP *** The Human Services Alliance of Greater Prince William recently provided StreetLight a $60,000.00 grant that allowed us to help those in our community facing financial hardships incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With these funds, we were able to help 25 households. Many were families with young children facing rent evictions due to multiple months of unpaid rent. All of them lost their jobs due to COVID.

After handing one client a check for her overdue rent, she broke down in tears. Between sobs, she told us that it was such a relief to receive our help. For months, she had been overcome with anxiety about where her children would sleep if they were evicted from their apartment. She could not get unemployment benefits because she had worked as a maid for a private family, who were unfortunately forced to lay her off for the duration of this pandemic.

*** WE AREN'T FINISHED YET! *** Although StreetLight is extremely grateful for the blessings this grant afforded our clients, we have so many more families that need our help. We would like to raise an additional $30,000 so we may continue to serve those in our community who are facing extreme hardship during these unprecedented times. Please consider helping. Please give a donation if you can. Please share this post with your friends, family, church, and neighbors. Together, we can help a struggling family get caught up on their bills. Together, we can help keep children in their homes and in their beds. TOGETHER, WE ARE TRANSFORMING LIVES!
