Through a partnership with community members and local churches, a community garage sale event will provide funds to assist in paying legal fees and fines for community members.
Applicants will complete the application, engage in meals with community members, and staff the event to be eligible to receive a stewardship award. Community members will donate items and form connections with applicants by sharing meals and staffing the garage sale with the applicants.
Legal Fees and Fines inhibit our neighbor’s ability to maintain employment and puts them in a difficult financial position.
According to the 100 Families organization, because of families not being able to pay on their legal fees and fines, 56% of parents that have partnered with 100 Families have a suspended driving license. This limits the ability to earn an income and make payments on outstanding legal debts.
