  • TESTIMONIALS

    “One day, during the usual February lull, an injury put me out of work for 10 days. I knew rent was going to be impossible. My friend reached out to Andrew and the Fund which gave me..., which covered most of my rent for March 1. It was a huge help, since I was/am not in a position to receive help financially from family.”

    "I just wanted to say thank you again! Today I had to go and get insulin and diabetic supplies, and as you know, servers generally don't have benefits to cover items like these. You guys took a huge burden off of my shoulders and I will be forever grateful! I have shared your information with all those that I know in hopes of helping others as well. What you're doing is quite amazing!"
