Donate

The Navigation Stability fund

The Navigation Stability fund provides small grants to enrolled families for necessary costs related to employment, service access, or household stability such as:

  • The cost of a bus pass so that a single mother can get to and from work
  • Tutors or entrance exams for those seeking increased educational attainment as part of their progress toward self-sufficiency
  • Driving lessons, so that families can more readily access the things that they need
  • Security deposits, so that families can secure housing, as we know that a safe, stable place to live is a keystone of health and progress for low-income families.
