Nazareth Housing and TD Bank raise $2,335 in Bring Change Campaign

adminEvents

Nazareth Housing & TD Bank partnered for the Bring Change Campaign, raising $2,335 towards homelessness prevention programs at Nazareth Housing. The campaign, held on Friday November 20, 2015 at TD Bank East Village (47 3rd Ave), encouraged community members to convert their loose change into paper bills, the value of which TD Bank matched in a donation to Nazareth Housing’s Housing Stability Support Project (HSSP).

HSSP provides ongoing social service support to low-income households and seniors to promote housing retention and continued self-sufficiency. This program is critical to Nazareth Housing which assisted 7,722 individuals in Fiscal Year 2015. Nazareth Housing’s HSSP meets the needs of a growing number of households facing the loss of their housing but not yet in need of emergency shelter—addressing underlying causes before crisis ensues. HSSP offers housing retention and economic empowerment through extensive HUD-certified housing counseling, needs assessment, intensive case management, emergency assistance for rent and utility arrears, connectivity to benefits and rental subsidies, financial security counseling, and skill-building workshops.

“The support for Bring the Change was terrific,” said Executive Director Michael Callaghan, “many thanks to those who donated a portion of all of their change and to TD Bank for its match.”
