Make It Home Fund

Help Women Make It Home

The Make it Home Fund was established in 2015 to provide up to $500 in one-time costs associated with moving women into permanent housing. Affordable housing is scarce, and when available, it moves quickly. As such, it is crucial that the application fee, security deposit, and first month’s rent are paid as soon as possible to secure the home. The $500 one-time stipend also covers necessities such as furniture and moving costs. All recipients of this fund are a participant in our programs, and without this help, would not be able to move into or sustain their home. Sarah’s Circle maintains financial and administrative controls of the program. For example, all fees are paid directly to vendors on the client’s behalf.
