Four Reasons to Support the Good Samaritan Fund

  1. 100% of donations to We’ve Got Talent go directly to helping families with rent and utilities.
  2. Last year we distributed almost $160,000 to local families.  We helped nearly 2,100 families avoid eviction and keep the lights on.
  3. Rents in Tippecanoe County have gone up almost 11% since 2019. The vast majority of very low-income households in our county pay more than half their income in rent.  That means that a single unexpected bill can easily force them to choose between paying their rent and buying food.
  4. Most important – our clients are real people. They might be your neighbors, people from your church, or the person who bags your groceries. They might be an aide at your child’s school or your waiter the next time you go out to eat. They work hard, and just need a little help to get by.  YOU can make all the difference.
