Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done.

What We Do

Help Us Move In (HUMI) is on a mission helping children to escape homelessness by engaging communities in sustainable solutions.

We work with community agencies that provide services to families at risk or experiencing homelessness by offering a unique matching grant opportunity.

How It Works

Partner agencies will receive a Homeless No More Challenge Grant from HUMI over the next two years ($10,000 per year) to launch a program aimed at eviction prevention and rehousing for families with children.

The grant is not a hand-out: agencies must raise an initial $10,000 before HUMI awards the $10,000 grant. Further, the partner agency is then expected to engage the community and match the funds with another $20,000 each year.

This double challenge match is designed to reinforce a self-supporting habit of contributions from the community towards a sustainable program. HUMI will assist to set up the program and establish a community Working Group that will monitor and coordinate the fundraising efforts moving forward.
