Who We Help
LCG iCare Foundation provides short-term financial assistance to current employees of Learning Care Group who have demonstrated financial need arising from severe hardship and/or emergency circumstances. Qualifying events include:
Natural disaster (flood, tornado, hurricane, wildfire, etc.)
We provide solidarity and aid for catastrophic natural events that cause great damage and human suffering where victims cannot alleviate without support. Assistance is provided on an individual basis for basic items such as food, clothing, furniture, temporary lodging, etc., for items not reimbursed by insurance.
If you and your family have been displaced, temporarily or permanently, by a house fire and there is a loss of personal belongings, we can provide assistance for basic items such as food, clothing, furniture, temporary lodging, etc., for items not reimbursed by insurance.
If you are fleeing an abusive and/or violent situation and need immediate financial assistance to do so, please contact us directly.
In the event of a death, of an immediate or extended family member, we can provide financial assistance. Your individual travel expenses may also be provided for the funeral of an immediate or extended family member. We are sensitive to the beliefs and traditions regarding funeral and burial customs and will be conscientious to balance overall costs.
In an effort to provide financial support, we will provide a grant to the family of any employee who passes away while employed by Learning Care Group.
Eviction Prevention (Pilot Program from February – December 2021)
Assistance may be provided when there is the possibility of eviction, foreclosure, or loss of primary residence when an employee is past due more than 45 days on rent or mortgage payments.
If the residence is in your name or your spouse/domestic partner’s name and if you have evidence that payments have been made for at least 90 days prior to this extenuating circumstance that caused you to get behind in your payments, then you may be eligible.
This pilot will run until allotted funds are reached.
