When my mother recently passed away in California, I needed to make funeral arrangements and travel to say my goodbyes. However, on a fixed income I could not afford these unexpected, but necessary expenses. “The loan provided by the HFLA allowed me to take care of my mother as she so deserved and provide me with peace of mind during this very emotional time.”
GENERAL FUND RECIPIENT
As a single mother of two school-age children, I was living on credit cards and sleeping in a cheap hotel. The loan saved my life and allowed me to find a small affordable efficiency, raise my children in peace and devote myself to their well-being and education."
Dire Needs Fund Borrower
A middle aged woman was forced to live with her mother due to her rental apartment complex going into foreclosure and needed to purchase a reliable used car in order to travel back and forth to work which was now at a much greater distance away. HFLA was able to help this woman maintain her employment situation by providing a $2,000 loan.
