Today more than 60% of American families are living paycheck to paycheck, with little or no financial reserves. Most of these families are living with very low incomes and often without any sort of lifeline should they run into trouble. An unexpected medical bill, disruption to employment, or flat tire can cause people to miss a rent payment leading to housing instability or homelessness.
These are the people Second Step Housing is here to serve. We provide deeply affordable housing for people and families living with low incomes and those who are without housing.
Once a family moves into one of our properties, we provide staff members to work with them to ensure they can remain stable in their new home. We connect our residents with community resources and rental assistance, sometimes we pay for a crib for a new baby, a bus pass to help someone get to work, or a replacement social security card a person needs to complete a job application. This is our commitment to our residents – we will do as much as we can to help them move their lives forward.
Your donation is essential in providing this vital support to our residents.
This month we are participating in the Give More 24 annual day of giving.
