People suffering illness often face financial difficulties. Suddenly, household bills become overwhelming; utilities are in jeopardy of being shut-off or an eviction notice is received. The Rainy Day Fund provides emergency payments directly to the utility companies and landlords, ensuring that each patient has a warm, safe place to call home while recovering.
The Rainy Day Fund also provides grocery gift cards & hospital transportation and parking costs. Shine Through The Rain also reviews special requests for consideration above and beyond the scope of services already covered.
The Rainy Day Fund is a monthly program that works directly with your social worker. They will work with you and your family to complete the application and to include the additional documentation needed.
*All Applications are due on the 15th of each month.
