At HIF, our mission is to help individuals and families remain in or return to stable housing through our Homeless Prevention Programs including emergency assistance grants, shelter renovations and affordable housing initiatives.
While we are facing the COVID-19 crisis and everyone is losing their jobs due to the shelter in place order, we initiated the COVID-19 Emergency Fund to help those who are in need of assistance during these difficult times.
One of the families we awarded a grant to was the Paula-Navarro family. They were affected by the COVID-19 crisis, both husband and wife lost their jobs. They learned about HIF through the leasing manager at Terramina Square, and luckily for them, they were able to submit an application and received a grant to help with April rent and basic essential needs.
We were touched by their story and their thank you letter to us was more than heartwarming:
