SERCAP's Essential & Critical Needs Program Assists Low-Income Couple in Caroline County, Virginia!

Recently, SERCAP’s Essential & Critical Needs Program assisted a low-income couple in Caroline County, VA, with repairing their water-lines. The water pipes and hoses at their home had deteriorated and needed repairs. However, since the couple’s sole income is from social security, they were unable to afford the cost of the repairs themselves without experiencing financial hardship.

Fortunately, SERCAP was able to step-in and provide financial assistance to help with the needed repairs. SERCAP’s Essential & Critical Needs Program provided a Grant in the amount of $582.67 for the project, restoring full functionality to the clients’ waterlines, and once again providing the couple with reliable access to clean, safe drinking water in their home.

Without SERCAP’s Essential & Critical Needs Program, and other similar programs and services, many low-income individuals and communities would be forced to go without such necessities as fully functioning wells and septic systems, safe and affordable housing, reliable access to clean drinking water, indoor plumbing, community development and infrastructure needs, water/wastewater infrastructure solutions, and more. It is important to remember that even in the US in the 21st Century; there are those who do not have reliable access to clean, safe drinking water, environmentally sound septic facilities, and affordable housing. In order to help SERCAP continue to provide assistance to both the individuals and communities in need, please consider making a donation to SERCAP’s Water Life! Fund!

Additionally, all of SERCAP’s programs in Virginia, are leveraged by the Budget Appropriation from the Virginia General Assembly, administered by DHCD.
