Women and Children's Eviction Prevention Fund

Women who visit CARES, likely the head of the household, often face impossible choices between buying groceries and medicines and paying utilities and rent.  Often a sudden, unexpected hardship such as loss of a job, illness or family tragedy can interrupt a person’s ability to pay their rent.   The need for rent assistance is enormous, as CARES  gets an average of 5 requests a day for help with eviction notices.

The BWGC funds will provide financial assistance to women facing eviction and support operating expenses.
