Some local providers have used EFS Program funds in the following ways: (1) A drop-in center, available for homeless individuals during daytime hours when shelters are closed, used EFS funds to begin a lunch program; (2) A family shelter used EFS funds to increase the quality of the diet available to mothers and children and added a morning meal; (3) A shelter used funds to purchase additional cots and beddings, and thus increase shelter capacity; (4) A food bank used EFS funds to increase the amount of food and the protein quality it distributed to its pantry system; and (5) A shelter organization used EFS funds to make one-month mortgage and rent payments to prevent evictions which kept families in their own homes and lightened the shelter population.
