The Betty Proctor Fund (BPF) provides one-time assistance for individuals or families who have a need that threatens their self-sufficiency and can not be met through their own resources. Assistance includes, but is not limited to: medical, dental, education, transportation, water, rent and utility. Please see this overview for eligibility details.
To receive assistance from BPF, a client must first find a referring case worker, government agency, non profit agency or church to submit an application on their behalf. The Betty Proctor Fund Navigator at The Action Center will directly coordinate with a client’s case worker. Clients will not be contacted personally by The Action Center. Please allow up to three weeks for applications to be processed.
Here is a list of possible agencies that can assist clients with the application process:
On July 1, 2011, The Action Center launched the Betty Proctor Fund, formerly known as Helping Hearts and Hands, as a new program. With this fund, The Action Center will continue Betty Proctor’s legacy of more than three decades dedicated to helping those in need from falling through the cracks.
