The Market’s Community Safety Net is a fund available to anyone working or living in Pike Place Market who has experienced extreme financial hardship, and who needs support to regain their stability.
With the cost of living at an all-time high, individual financial support has become critical for our neighbors living paycheck-to-paycheck or on fixed or low incomes. Last year, The Market Community Safety Net provided resources and emergency assistance to 93 people totaling $63,963 in funds, helping Market workers, residents and neighbors experiencing unemployment, loss of income, and health risks.
In addition to financial support, The Market Community Safety Net also provides community resource referrals and support provided by staff at The Market Commons with the goal of achieving long-term economic stability for our community members.
If you’re a Market community member looking for information about how to apply to the Market Community Safety Net, please send an email with your information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
