That’s why Coleman distributes Personal Assistance Grants. These grants are distributed at least four times per year. Each grant can be worth up to $500 and enables Coleman to quickly make a big difference in people’s lives.
Here are a few examples:
- A formerly homeless family of four finally secured housing. However, they were sleeping on the floor. Because of the Personal Assistance Grant, their Coleman case worker was quickly able to process the purchase of four beds to give our client family some dignity…and a good night’s rest.
- As part of our employment services program, our client was about to begin a new job in construction. All he needed was a pair of work boots – high quality, steel-toed, and built for safety. He didn’t have the money. The only thing keeping him from that new job was those boots. Because of the grant, he got the boots…the job…and began his new life.
- Another Coleman client used his bicycle for transportation to his job. In all kinds of weather, he biked to work. Till one day, the bike broke down beyond repair. Coleman quickly stepped in with a Personal Assistance Grant to replace his bike so he could keep his job.
