Julie, Grant Recipient:
“I applied for this grant to help me get back on my feet and remain stable while getting out of an abusive relationship. Without this grant I would have been facing homelessness. I was able to get the help I needed, and as a result I was able to keep my home and not have to relocate or possibly find a second job. Now, I feel safe and and I am finally able to rebuild my life."

“Launching an Immediate Response Program with Emergency Assistance Foundation broadened employee assistance eligibility and provided a new way to show all of our employees that we care. This step eliminated doubts, demonstrating that the company will support employees during challenging times, regardless of title or salary. This notion is demonstrative of our company culture and has helped reinforce NRG as a
place where people are proud to work.”

“You never know when hardship is going to strike. You don’t know where it’s going to strike or who it may impact. We’ve learned that no one is immune to it, so we can all benefit from having a little bit of assistance to get us through rough times.”
