ORLANDO, Fla. — There are many families struggling in our community and if you are able to help, we invite you to join WFTV 9 Family Connection and our partners for “Community Strong” as we team up with local United Way agencies to help our neighbors, friends, co-workers and even strangers who have lost their jobs, stay in their homes. We have partnered with the United Way and their ALICE Recovery Fund which helps families with rent, mortgage and utilities.
100% of donations will be invested in the ALICE Recovery Fund to keep families facing the economic consequences of COVID-19 from becoming homeless.
More about the ALICE RECOVERY FUND
- Housing is by far families’ greatest expense and in Central Florida housing costs are disproportionately high. The ALICE Recovery Fund was established to help families remain stably housed by providing support with rent, mortgage or utility assistance.
- Clients must demonstrate financial need by presenting documentation including but not limited to bank statements, pay stubs, rent agreements, utility bills, etc.
- For those seeking assistance, visit www.HFUW.org/virus to complete a request for assistance
or call 2-1-1.
