COVID-19 RELIEF FUND
The COVID-19 Relief Fund will focus on supporting single mothers who are being hard hit during this time. This relief fund aims to offer grants of up to $200 to single mothers in the Lake County Illinois area experiencing financial difficulty. This funding is intended to provide financial support to single-mother families who are currently faced with hardship at this time. Our grants will be used for families who have emergency requests related to groceries, housing needs (including utilities) medical assistance, prescriptions, or childcare.
There are more than 13.7 million single parents in the United States and 84% of them are mothers. Also, there are more than 76.5 million single parents in the world. On average there is a single parent in every group of 25 people.
Imagine for a moment not having enough groceries to feed your family, or maybe your children were fed through the school system and now those benefits are lost. There are single moms facing unbelievable circumstances and unpredictable crises that we as a community can support and ease the stress. These families need our support.
