ROSE created an Emergency Loan Fund to protect families during financial emergencies. This pool of money uses donations from the public to offer zero-interest loans with flexible payment plans to residents in ROSE housing. When residents repay their loans, it frees up the funds for another family to use.
We understand earning low-income can make it difficult when unexpected costs come up. To increase financial stability, the Emergency Loan Fund provides a resource that is free and flexible. There are no late-fees or hidden costs.
“I wanted to share with you how valuable the emergency loan was for my family. Having this available for help in a time of need is wonderful and I cannot tell you how grateful I am to everyone who makes this possible!”
– Tanesha, resident, school secretary for Portland Public
