Single mother of three provided new oven through hardship grant
- 29 May 2023
Caroline is a single mother of three. She stretches her income to pay for food and bills, with no room in the budget for much else. Like other parents in her position, unexpected financial setbacks like appliance breakdowns can threaten Caroline’s ability to provide for her children.
When Caroline’s oven broke down, there was no way her low-income job could provide enough to repair it. The Barzilai Foundation’s hardship grant program is designed in part to help someone in a challenging situation find their way back to stability. A hardship grant was used to purchase Caroline a new oven, getting her and her children back to a more stable place.
