Facing a global crisis shouldn’t also mean facing homelessness.
As COVID-19’s impact continues, we’re seeing increased demand. With your financial help, we can have the reserves needed to provide rental, utility, and food assistance to all of our residents. Your action and generosity is needed now.
From March 25, 2020 through April 25, 2021, the Services Department has performed the following:
- Requested/Made Referrals in excess of $460,400 to enable over 1800 families to maintain safe secure housing through Rental and Utility Assistance.
- Enabled over 11,000 people to maintain health and wellness by providing over 64,200 meals, produce boxes and other food resources.
- Monitored health/safety/welfare and SDOH needs of residents and community members by performing over 36,740 Wellness Checks and Outreach Services.
Many of our residents work in retail, food & hospitality, and service industries, and have experienced a drastic reduction in hours or complete job loss. Other residents are seniors or people living with disabilities, and depend on Prospera for basic needs such as food, utility and rental assistance.
Eviction is not an option during this time of a pandemic crisis. Your generosity is needed now more than ever to help our neighbors stay in their homes and live with the dignity we all deserve.
With your action and generosity, you will give Prospera the opportunity to maintain safe, secure housing through rental/utility assistance and maintain food security for our 8,800+ residents across South and Central Texas.
