Thank you for investing in the work of justice!

Last year, for every $1 invested into the work of BREAD, $57 went back into the community.

When you add up the important victories we won in 2023:

  • The Franklin County Commissioners continued to approve $6.5 million for affordable housing helping at least 200 families per year access safe, decent housing.
  • Franklin County has an Affordable Housing Trust Fund with revenue of about $5 million of public dollars in 2022 that has financed the development of over 14,000 units of affordable housing since 2001.
  • Franklin County allocated $7.9 million from the American Rescue Plan budget toward affordable housing.
  • Nine Restorative Justice Circles are in place to prevent children from entering the Juvenile Justice system. These circles should save the people of Franklin County approximately $2.2 million dollars by diverting them from the court system. 
  • Neighborhood blight is disappearing through the Franklin County Land Bank with annual revenue of about $3.5 million dollars. The land bank has demolished nearly 4,000 vacant units.

When you take the dollar amounts invested and saved from these important victories and divide them by BREAD’s budget of $441,700.00, you’ll see that an investment in BREAD is an investment in a stronger community! Thank you for your partnership!
