Good Neighbor Fund
Mountain View Community Center is excited to share the creation of the Good Neighbor Fund. As we cope with the uncertainty and financial hardships brought on by the pandemic, we are accepting applications to serve our neighbors in need with monetary and volunteer support.
We are calling this the Good Neighbor Fund because you must be nominated by a neighbor; you cannot self-nominate. All gifts will be paid to a third party (landlord, utility company, childcare provider, etc.), not directly to the nominee. We will also accept non-monetary needs that require volunteer coordination such as shopping for shut-ins, or yard-care for the ill. Nominees must live in Edgewood, Milton, or Fife. Nominators can live outside this area.
The fund has been approved to extend through June 2021 as funds allow.
“Due to Covid-19 I lost my job soon after the announcement was made then my husband’s hours were cut, then he lost his job entirely! We have four children and taken care of them was never a problem until now. This fund has helped us with our rent for the month and has taken away some anxiety from our family. We are so grateful for your help!"

"I applaud *Tamie for being a survivor through numerous tragedies. Now has had a huge financial hit due to COVID-19. She was homeless at one point but now has a tenacious spirit of never going back. I see Tamie as someone who does not just want a hand out, but a hand up. She wants to become self-reliant and a productive citizen."
