At one point in my life I was single with a child and things were hard. I was moving and utilites required a deposit which I did not have. I asked everyone I knew and the were all struggling. Someone told me about Al Maun Fund so I gave it a try. They were very thorough in the their investigation to make sure I had a legitimate need. After they paid the utilities they contacted me soon after to see if I was doing ok and needed any this else. Al Maun Fund is wonderful and tuly appreciated.

This organization has helped through very hard times. People can receive assistance for bills, rent, food, and more. It feels good to have an organization that supports the community without hesitation. They are kind and never makes the person in need feels inferior or less than a human being. I am very, very, thankful!

if I had to make changes to this organization I would suggest that more people get involved. They do a great job but all programs like this needs the community for success.

I have learned about this organization in 2008 and although I have not needed its service, I am happy that such an organization exist in case I'm tested in the future and require their help.

This charity is very efficient, has a good mission and execution. The staff and volunteers are genuine about their work and the people they serve. I support their mission and organization. And I hope and pray that they are receipients of this award. This $5000.00 can help a total of 25 families who may need a little help to get their family by.

Al Maun Fund helped my family receive immediate assistance. It was really hard for me to ask for this help, but we really needed it. After verifying my need and personal information they made a payment to my electric company. Their staff is warm and professional, Thank God I am really grateful for the help!

Ask that their verification process for requests be more transparent for the donors to increase trust.

I learned about the Al Maun Fund while I was listening to a lecture. During the lecture, the speaker talked about how the Al Maun fund had helped his family in a time of need. The family had been short of funds for necessities and the Al Maun Fund helped them. He spoke about the relief the assistance from Al Maun Fund provided. With the times we live in, it is a comfort to know there are people like Al Maun fund to help those in need.
