“Emergency aid has been at our

$479) to cover basic needs in a financial crisis, like mortgage payments, utility
bills, doctors bills and health insurance. In its last fiscal year, FHBS distributed
90 such grants to 71 clients. “When you see the difference it makes, you have to
get passionate about helping these women,” says Eileen who, like every member
of FHBS, serves as a dedicated volunteer.
