“Thank you for your help in knocking down a past due rent; this will give me a chance to get on Section 8 housing. It was a major burden taken off my mind."

- Carolyn, grant recipient


A Hat for Harold

A Hat for Harold–-a volunteer-based 501(c)(3) public charity-–started with a pilot site in Howard County, Maryland, in November, 2012. In June, 2014 a second peer council started at a women and children’s shelter in Kentucky.

Our micro grants are intended to provide just a little help as a person dealing with homelessness is trying to find work, go back to school, or obtain housing. We are not an employment agency, but we can provide the funds to purchase the work boots required for a warehouse job. We are not a transportation service, but can provide the funds for a new bicycle or a monthly bus pass so people can get to interviews or work. We are not a government agency, but we can provide a grant to obtain a state ID, driver’s license or birth certificate.

Join us in building a sustainable program that will help individuals on their path toward stable housing and employment by making a tax-deductible contribution today and telling your friends and family about our mission.

Thank you for your contribution and support.
