Back on Track
What is Back on Track?
Conestoga Valley Christian Community Services created the Back on Track program in 2017 to assist hard-working families and individuals in avoiding homelessness caused by an unavoidable financial hardship.
Who does it serve?
We have found that people who have fallen through the cracks described as the “working poor” because they make too much money to qualify for public assistance and are earning just enough to get by paycheck to paycheck. It takes one sudden incident – car accident or car repair, medical expense, a high utility bill, and the like – to send a person into a downward spiral of debt. And it doesn’t take long for someone to fall behind on their rent or mortgage.
How does it work?
CVCCS will customize a program that will help them to dig out of a recent financial setback and get “back on track” with their finances. The program seeks to provide them with a comprehensive program that provides mentorship, compassion, and limited financial assistance to address their immediate needs while planning for a self-sustaining future.
