Supporting Scholarships & Emergency Shelter for Families
Scholarships for Women – Scholarships will be awarded to women living in Champaign County pursuing job training, technical or vocational certification, or an Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree at Parkland College. This scholarship fund aims to provide life-changing contributions toward the educational expenses of women.
Emergency Shelter for Families – Over 600 schoolchildren were registered with no permanent address in Champaign County this past year. Power of the Purse will provide financial support for United Way's Emergency Shelter for Families, which provides emergency housing for homeless families who may otherwise have nowhere to stay. The Shelter program provides case management services to help families end the cycle of homelessness.
