PURPOSE

Rainy Day Fund works to eliminate the financial barriers that prevent individuals from exiting or avoiding the legal system by assisting with costs associated with housing, employment, securing identification, restoration of rights, court costs, and other immediate needs.

MISSION

We work to provide funding to help meet the immediate needs and alleviate financial barriers to success for individuals who are involved in (or at risk of) involvement with the US legal system.

VISION

We envision a community where one’s risk of legal system involvement is not dependent upon one’s ability to pay for their immediate needs.

Without a birth certificate you cannot get a license/ID, without a license/ID you can’t do MANY things in our society. Second Presbyterian Church, Richmond, VA offered a community lunch where attorneys from Legal Aid Justice Center were able to met Mr. W. 

Mr. W was discussing the barriers to getting back on his feet and a major block was obtaining his birth certificate. 

Along with the support and work of the other two organizations, Rainy Day Fund was able to pay for the vital record process help Mr. W get on track!
