Established in 2015

This fund helps employees or eligible dependents who are experiencing economic hardship and are unable to afford housing, utilities, and other basic living needs because of a natural disaster; life threatening illness or injury; death or other catastrophic or extreme circumstances beyond the employee’s control. Eligibility: All Freeland Management (and affiliated companies) employees who are 1) regularly scheduled to work 30 or more hours per week; 2) currently employed by Freeland; 3) employed for at least one year prior to this application; and 4) actively employed or on approved leave of absence having worked 20 hours a week prior to the leave are eligible to apply for The Freeland Cares Assistance Fund. If the employee has passed away, then a spouse or eligible dependent may apply. An employee can only be approved for assistance once within a 12-month period. Grants: The maximum grant amount available for assistance is $1,000. The maximum award is not guaranteed, and in many cases, a lesser amount will be awarded. All payments are made directly to vendors as bill payments; no assistance funds will be sent directly to applicants and applicants will not be reimbursed.
