We fund agencies and programs serving impoverished communities in Fairfield County. We support innovative approaches and partnerships that are the foundation for lasting change.
SURVIVAL. ECONOMIC SECURITY. EDUCATION AND HOPE FOR THE
It is Near & Far Aid’s mission to support men, women and children
living in poverty, by meeting their day-to-day needs and providing
long-term solutions for a better future.
Food, shelter and clothing. Sadly, thousands of people in Fairfield County don’t have access to these basic necessities. Near & Far Aid grants fund the most effective providers of relief to the neediest in our community.
Job training, financial literacy, affordable housing. With proper support services and a path toward self-sufficiency, the funds granted by Near & Far Aid assist the working poor and provide stability and hope.
EDUCATION AND HOPE FOR THE FUTURE
All children have a right to a safe home and an education regardless of zip code. Near & Far Aid is firmly committed to Fairfield County’s children. Our funding provides safe spaces to learn and thrive as well as offering protective services.
The agencies we fund have established poverty guidelines and serve the economically disadvantaged in Fairfield County.
They provide food and shelter for the homeless and job training for the working poor.
They run literacy and educational programs for disadvantaged children and their families.
They care for families in crisis and victims of abuse and provide access to quality health care for
those who would otherwise be denied.
Some of these agencies are well established non-profits while others are small but highly effective
grass roots organizations. Large or small, they share a partnership with Near & Far Aid to effect
lasting change on the lives of many.
