We are in the first round of funding for this important program. Below is the outline of our full service program and although we aren’t fully funded, we are servicing as many women as possible with our limited funds.
Our mission is to provide financial and emotional assistance for women and their families as they are going through breast cancer treatment.
Tata Haven networks with patient care coordinators at breast cancer centers and other support agencies to complete the circle of care for women going through breast cancer treatment in Reno and Las Vegas, Nevada.
Tata Haven provides gift cards to the market of the clients’ choice; the dollar amount depends on family size.
Tata Haven assists with emergency housing costs. We may pay the security deposit and the first month’s rent to assist women who have become homeless due to breast cancer treatment. Our goal is to keep women from being homeless and alone while they fight their breast cancer battle.
CLOTHES AND OTHER NEEDS
Tata Haven provides gift cards to local discount stores for the needs of children in the home. We do this throughout the year with a higher demand in the fall for back to school clothes and shoes, etc. and at Christmas for toys and other gifts.
MEDICAL CO-PAYS & COBRA COSTS
We provide this aid as needed. We do not want to see women lose their insurance in the middle of treatment or not be able to get their prescriptions filled.
HOME HEALTH CARE & FINAL EXPENSE
We pay for short-term home health care as needed. We also assist with final expenses.
