There are times when we all need a helping hand. We Are The Difference, Inc. will lead you in the right direction to receive help and get involved where we can. Please be sure to read our policy for assistance before completing an application for assistance.
It is the policy of We Are The Difference, Inc. (WATD) to assist others in need of temporary assistance. This assistance may be in the form of direct Grants, direct assistance with fund raising events, and/or referral to a community agency that provides appropriate assistance. It is the general policy of WATD to provide any financial assistance through indirect means, i.e. rather than giving individual money for rent; make arrangements to make rent payment directly on behalf of the individual.
Individuals requesting assistance directly or on behalf of another must submit an Application for Grant Assistance to WATD. The application will be forwarded by the Director of Social Welfare for initial review. After review the application will be presented to the Board for review and discussion. WATD President will review the Board’s recommendation with WATD’s Legal representative prior to any disbursement of funds or other form of assistance, e.g. fundraising coordination.
