Our 2021 financial aid programs are currently full and we are no longer accepting applications. 

Parents with Newborn Baby

Our primary method to providing monthly supplemental support and to empower our member families facing economic challenges - is by providing each family with our custom I'm Young And Empowered, Inc. debit card in our partnership with Netspend

This innovative support also allows for you to make rent payments, pay cellphone bills, purchase gas and for internet/utility bill payments. 

We also provide re-loadable grocery gift cards in our B2B partnership with Winco Foods.

All of these methods provide a very caring "hand up" and not hand out ​- by empowering your family with the ability to purchase what you need and combining our support with other sources of income.


Providing a dignified and empowering way for your family to create your own solutions to your particular needs and priorities as your individual conditions change.
