It is our hope that the EFA office will keep people from becoming homeless in the first place. We can offer one-time grants, every 12 months, without creating dependency. We can help with disconnected utilities, eviction notices, and prescriptions.

In 2018 RAM provided $206,991 that helped 4,676 carefully screened people who had received cut off notices for utilities; eviction notices for their homes or needed life-saving medication that they could not afford.  This included 1,887 children who were provided with a continuing safe home.

Employment Counseling - In 2018 RAM assisted 79 clients with birth certificates, I.D.s, transportation to work, contacts, clothing/shoes, tools, etc.
