Applying for Assistance

Assistance requests for those in need of assistance are normally referred to the People for People Foundation by social services, civic groups, schools, governmental agencies, police or fire departments, hospitals, and religious organization.  Applicants must be residents of Gloucester County, NJ, USA. Two programs for assistance are offered:

People for People Direct Grant Program:

Our primary focus is on the “Normally Self Sufficient” who experience a one time financial emergency due to a family crisis or other emergency and may not readily qualify to receive help from traditional private or government sources.  Applicant should not already be on government assistance except for programs such as, but not limited to, unemployment insurance, worker’s compensation, food stamps, or receiving disability benefits.

Subject to budgetary limitations, our hope is that the financial help we can provide through our Direct Grant Program will resolve the applicant’s immediate problem and get them back on their feet. For those with multiple problems, or needs larger than People for People can financially address alone, people of Gloucester County can seek help through our “Hands Across the County” Advocacy Program.

Hands Across the County Advocacy Program:

Hands Across the County Advocacy Program will advocate and provide assistance to individuals and families across the wide spectrum of our community who seek help with multiple problems but may lack the ability or means to successfully navigate the help provider network consisting of government as well as traditional and non-traditional private sources on their own.  The goal is to help secure the maximum help possible through multiple sources for which they may be eligible.
