HOW YOUR DONATIONS HELP
Financial donations are primarily used to subsidize rent payments of the families served by Faith Community Homes. Donations may also be used for financial assistance including, but not limited to, child care, educational costs for parents working to improve their employment skills and case management assistance for families in the program.
WHY RENT ASSISTANCE
IS SO CRITICAL
Rent for a modest apartment in our community ranges from $1,000 to $1,300 per month. Guidelines recommend spending no more than 30 percent of income on housing. This means that a family must earn at least $40,800 per year, or $3,400 per month, to be able to afford a modest rent in our community using only 30 percent of their income. Families coming to Faith Community Homes often have incomes of less than $25,000 per year when they begin our program.
REASONS TO DONATE
Donations go to families right here in your community.
You are helping local families become financially stable and productive.
You are helping the children in these families have a healthier home life.
You are strengthening your own community.
You can feel good that you are helping a neighbor in great need.
With your support, Faith Community Homes helps low-income families in Arlington Heights and Palatine achieve a stable and secure living situation. Donations such as yours enable families like these to live confidently in the hope of a brighter future:
A single mother has an apartment without fear of eviction and her children attend a school nearby.
A couple with two children are able to increase their family income, get out of debt and pay all their bills without fear of being homeless.
A family is able to purchase a home five years after finishing our program because they have learned to budget and manage their finances.
Your donation goes a long way to making these kinds of things happen. Thank you.
