The Application Process is very simple. A one to two page essay must be written explaining who you are, the hardship you have experienced, and how you believe you have been resilient in moving forward.
You should include a description of your needs (counseling, housing, a vehicle, childcare, medical, paying of debts, etc.) as well as your goals/dreams for the future.
You may email your essay in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to nominate someone for the award, you may do so, however, the individual would still need to complete the essay themselves. This is VERY important, as taking ownership and responsibility is part of resiliency. There is also a feeling of pride and accomplishment that comes from doing something yourself.
If you are unsure where to start with the application, you may request a template to guide you along by emailing email@example.com as well.
