Eaton Federal Sponsors Local Homelessness Prevention Campaign

CHARLOTTE, MI; October 30, 2019- Eaton Federal Savings Bank announces its matching fundraising campaign aimed at preventing homelessness in Eaton County.  The campaign corresponds with November’s nationally recognized Homeless Awareness Month.

During the month, Eaton Federal will be collecting donations to benefit Housing Services Mid Michigan’s Prevention Program campaign- “HOME Is

Where _________ Happens” and will match the first $5,000 in donations. 

Housing Services Mid Michigan believes a home is the basis of stability.  It understands that a short term emergency can jeopardize all the things a home provides; lack of a home can result in the loss of a job, poor performance in school, and isolation from family and friends. The agency supports these families in working through their emergency back to stable, affordable housing. Last year, the agency assisted 139 homeless households while at the same time provided assistance to 392 prevention households. In order to meet the needs of the local community, Housing Services depends on support from the community to bridge the gaps that exist in prevention funding that occur during the year.  Your donation ensures greater funding stability and fewer families become homeless in 2020.

Eaton Federal Savings Bank will accept donations at all of its locations throughout the month of November.  Or, donations may be sent directly to Housing Services Mid Michigan, PO Box 746 Charlotte, MI 48813.
