According to a press release from UWWC,  in response to home fires that left families homeless at Hamilton Crossing, United Way of Washtenaw County awarded Eastern Michigan University a $3,000 grant to subsidize the cost of renter’s insurance for Hamilton Crossing residents. This grant will provide renter’s insurance to families to protect their personal property in the event of a fire, theft or natural disaster.
“United Way providing the grant will allow several families to have options in the event that something happens causing them to be displaced,” says Marquan Jackson, Director of the Ypsilanti Housing Commission and United Way Board Member.
According to United Way of Washtenaw County, The Family Empowerment Program (FEP) is the largest service providing organization for Ypsilanti Housing Commission (YHC) families. The FEP fosters self-sufficiency for YHC residents by both serving as an access point for key community resources and providing a fixed rent cost not to exceed 30% of their income. A fixed rent in a safe community with on-site social services allows residents to experience upward mobility.
“In Washtenaw County, the Red Cross responds to more home fires than any other type of disaster. This data is constant year to year,” stated Bridget Healy, Director of Community Impact. “This responsive grant to the FEP ensures families are not homeless after house fires and are protected in the event of an emergency.” As state in the media release.
According to United Way, "Reducing the rate of homeless individuals and families is one of our goals and it is being achieved with our strategies of supporting the prevention of housing and homelessness. The best way to fight homelessness in our community is to prevent people from becoming homeless in the first place."
