Q Foundation is a nonprofit technology company providing rent payment processing in the social sector.
We believe in a world where all people have a safe, decent, and affordable home. Toward this vision, we prevent homelessness by protecting the housing people already have, providing resources to secure new housing, and promoting public policy to increase opportunity for all.
Over the past 17 years, we have become one of the leading agencies providing emergency rent assistance. In response to the COVID-19 housing crisis, we provided over $1M in emergency rent assistance in June 2020 alone.
Our aim is to become the Square of paying people's rent. Toward that goal, we launched an online rent payment platform, called EVO, that we provided to the City of San Francisco to host the official COVID-19 housing stabilization fund called Give2SF. We have received over 7,200 applications for emergency assistance totaling $29M and growing.
While the Give2SF program is funded for SF residents, our online application has gone viral. We are receiving cries for help from across the nation. From rural Lassen county in far northern CA to Imperial CA across from Mexicali Mexico in the south. Cries for help are coming from LA to Albeqeurque. All along the rural south to coastal Carolinas. From Boston through Pennsylvania up to rural New Hampshire.
Our entire nation is reaching out for help. EVO is built and delivering emergency rent assistance today. We have the ability to respond to these cries for help across the nation. We just need you to put gas in the tank to fund our emergency response.
Please consider giving generously today.
