Excluded Healthcare Workers Helped in Detroit

Heart of the House Foundation recently helped a medical laundry attendant and her colleagues in Detroit with a difficult situation. Due to the pandemic, their hours has been drastically cut.

One of the workers, the only one with access to a car, drove her colleagues to work.

Then, one morning, the car wouldn’t start. It needed repairs.

Reduced hours and exclusion from state and federal benefits meant that the worker could not afford the repairs needed. Not only would she not be able to get to work, but neither would her three colleagues. It was a dire situation for all of them.

Thankfully, the worker applied to Heart of the House Foundation’s Excluded Workers Assistance Fund, and we were able to help. Proceeds from our fundraising allowed us to pay for the car repairs, and get four essential workers back to the work they love – supporting hospitals with with clean, sanitized linens.
