  • First month and/or past due rental assistance, mortgage payments or other housing assistance
  • Utility payments/deposits
  • Emergency help with moving and/or storage
  • Child care or summer day care expenses for working families in emergency situations
  • Transportation assistance to and from work, car repair and/or medical appointments
  • Clothing, such as uniforms, necessary to gain employment

“JFCS is most appreciative of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County grant as part of its Season of Sharing campaign that allows us to respond and provide financial support in a timely manner to families in emergency situations and help them continue to lead productive lives,” said Heidi Brown, CEO of JFCS.
