In May 2020, NNCC created the Family Emergency Fund to provide critical financial support to families in the form of low-barrier, rapid response grants. 

The goals of the Family Emergency Fund are to:

  • Ensure safe and healthy housing
  • Maintain family stability and ensure children's safety
  • Support education and health care access

"The best part is having an amazing nurse who loves and cares for my child the way I do. And having a program that provides so much for my child to help with her early learning and development." - Emergency Fund Recipient
