Frequently Asked

What happens once I refer someone?

When you refer someone, we provide an application link to gather a description of their current situation and some basic information. We'll use this to determine a fit with sponsors and create a private GoFundMe campaign. The ‘referral chain’ and basic information is shared, but we do not share the full name or identity of the family.

How do you find people in need?

Participants can be referred by a past employer, community leader, or family member. Individuals can also submit their own application. Our volunteer team works to document a ‘referral chain’ back to our core team. As we expand our team, the network we help does too.

Who is eligible to be referred for support?

Currently, we are prioritizing families in critical need of support due to loss of income from the pandemic.
