CARES Act Funds were awarded to Daviess County to help in the areas of shelter, rent, mortgage, utility and food.
We are proud to partner with the following organizations to ensure vulnerable populations receive critical services: Boulware Mission, Daniel Pitino Shelter, HELP Office, Saint Benedicts, Saint Vincent de Paul Blessed Mother Parish and St. Stephens Parrish, OASIS and Salvation Army.
In choosing organizations that receive funds the Board utilizes the guiding principles of efficiency, accountability, responsiveness, partnership and facilitating. The Board members review applications, discuss the greatest needs in the community and makes the decision on funding levels per organization.
We have seen so many people that need help with utility, rent, food and so much more because they were laid off and lost their income during the Covid-19 crisis. These funds will help many families that are seeking assistance for the first time and provide much needed relief for them.
