Giving Tuesday was launched in 2012 as a simple idea: to create a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Today, LCBH is launching its month-long show of support for the different programs and initiatives at LCBH with Giving Tuesday. LCBH needs your help now more than ever.
Throughout December, we will introduce you to multiple stakeholders at LCBH. To start, we want to introduce you to one of LCBH’s Board Members, Mae Whiteside. We’re thankful for Mae's support and her drive to give back to the community. Her story highlights why it’s crucial to create a stable environment for families and the amazing things they can achieve when they are not worried about eviction. Please take a moment to hear Mae's story.
For low-income families, the threat of homelessness due to the pandemic is very real. While state and federal laws prevent evictions today, those restrictions will end soon, placing thousands of renters who have experienced a COVID-19 related income loss at great peril.
Your gift helps our social workers connect clients with emergency rental assistance and allows our attorneys to negotiate landlord agreements to achieve the best outcome for both parties before drastic measures are taken.
Together—you, LCBH attorneys, and LCBH social workers—will achieve positive outcomes long after a client’s housing crisis is resolved. Your gift will prevent homelessness.
Please consider becoming a monthly donor this Giving Tuesday. Together, we will keep more families safe, healthy, and stably housed during and after the COVID-19 crisis.
