Rescue Housing Fund:

The Peery Foundation has partnered with Philanthropic Ventures Foundation and Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto (CLSEPA) to create the Rescue Housing Fund. These funds are for folks currently residing in East Palo Alto or Belle Haven who are in a unique position such that a small amount of funds could help keep them in their current housing within the community. Examples of these situations could include (but are not limited to) an unexpected medical expense that could force a tenant to fall behind on rent, or if someone is in between jobs and needs access to funds to be able to close the gap in their rent payment. Here is the application (in both English and Spanish) that can be downloaded, printed and submitted to CLSEPA.
