Funding is intended to remove financial barriers to success for individuals who are trying to help themselves. This program should benefit the residents of San Luis Obispo County.

Of particular interest are individuals who are in transition, e.g. foster youth exiting the system, women leaving domestic violence shelters, families at risk of homelessness, individuals completing rehabilitation, re-entry into the workforce. One-year grants will be provided to local human service providers who currently work with populations striving for self-sufficiency and have the capacity to assess and administer an assistance fund.
