I sat down with Alexandria Lafci, COO and Co-founder of New Story Charity, pre-Corona. Our conversation is even more relevant today. Seeing myself before the lockdown reminds me how much time has passed. Shorter hair and no sweat pants!
After Covid-19 hit our streets, NewsStoryCharity launched
The Neighborhood: their response to support the most vulnerable families in the US who have lost their income due to COVID. The goal is to ensure they don’t lose their homes, too.
It’s essentially a subscription program for monthly donors to help pay rent for the most vulnerable Americans so that they don’t become homeless. They hope to scale it to thousands of monthly supporters and match them with the best local orgs working on this. Attached is an overview.
If you are intrigued after listening you can do the following.
- Sign up / donate as a member of The Neighborhood
- monthly donations – 100% towards preventing at-risk families from becoming homeless due to losing their jobs
- Be a champion of the program by sharing os social and your network.
