With generous support from donors, Open Your Heart provided Small Sums with funding towards bus passes for 100 clients, helping them with reliable transportation during the first few weeks of work at their new job.
“Thank you to our generous supporter Open Your Heart for allowing us to supply our homeless clients with bus passes so they have a reliable way to get to work. Our mission at Small Sums is to outfit homeless individuals with the work items they need to take a new job and begin their path out of poverty. Reliable transportation plays a huge role in being able to take, and keep, a new job when you are homeless. Our clients are able to get a free 30-day bus pass during their first visit, and have the opportunity to receive bus passes for up to three months. Small Sums has been serving the metro area for over 15 years and has served over 6,000 clients. We are so proud of the resilience of our clients, particularly this last year, and thanks to the generosity of donors like Open Your Heart, will continue to support their efforts to get that consistent paycheck and get housing of their own!” – Small Sums
