The ALL-IN SHPE Relief Fund launched in 2020 to support our member needs during the national pandemic. As we have transitioned through post pandemic, we know that many of our members still have needs for day-to-day living that are not covered through other funding opportunities. Through the generous support of donors, we are able to continue offering aid to these members.

Application now closed.
