  • Family Stabilization Fund


    Dear Dr. MLK Jr. Families,


    If your household’s finances, food and security has been impacted negatively by COVID-19, please fill out our Family Stabilization Survey below to apply for assistance. We will be using information gathered from surveys to identify what families’ needs are, as well as to gather data to strengthen ongoing fundraising efforts. We will be reviewing people’s needs and begin making referrals to partner agencies this week. For expenses and needs that cannot be met by partner agencies we will start reviewing applications for our own Family Stabilization Fund starting in early June, prioritizing households who are not receiving adequate government aid.

    Please note that completing this survey does not guarantee receiving aid; we will do our best to connect everyone with support but please understand that we are prioritizing assistance to the most vulnerable community members. 

    Estimadas familias del Dr. MLK Jr.
    Si las finanzas, la alimentación y la seguridad de su hogar se han visto afectadas negativamente por COVID-19, complete nuestra Encuesta de estabilización familiar a continuación para solicitar asistencia. Utilizaremos la información recopilada de las encuestas para identificar cuáles son las necesidades de las familias, así como para recopilar datos para fortalecer los esfuerzos continuos de recaudación de fondos. Revisaremos las necesidades de las personas y esta semana comenzaremos a hacer referencias a agencias asociadas. Para los gastos y necesidades que no pueden ser satisfechos por las agencias asociadas, comenzaremos a revisar las solicitudes para nuestro propio Fondo de Estabilización Familiar a partir de principios de junio, priorizando los hogares que no reciben ayuda gubernamental adecuada.

    Tenga en cuenta que completar esta encuesta no garantiza recibir ayuda; haremos todo lo posible para conectar a todos con el apoyo, pero comprenda que estamos priorizando la asistencia a los miembros de la comunidad más vulnerables.
