2018 Safe Oasis Grant Program now accepting applications


Safe Oasis Grant ApplicationRe|shelter is now accepting applications for it’s 2018 Safe Oasis Grant Program. The grant monies awarded as a part of this program are required to be used for the purpose of creating a “safe oasis” through home and trailer renovations, air quality improvement appliances, environmental testing, water filtration systems, heaters, and related expenses. At this time, the Safe Oasis grant program is only available to legal residents of the U.S.

We currently have $8,000 to disburse in (20) individual grants of $400 each. Grants will be awarded based on financial need and medical necessity. Applications are due by April 30, 2018. Grants will be awarded on International MCS Awareness Day, May 12, 2018.

Any monies donated to re|shelter between now and April 30, 2018 will be used for the Safe Oasis Grant Program. Please let your friends and family know that their contributions will be used immediately to help people in great need. We will increase the number of grants available based on the funds received.

The 2018 grant program is dedicated in memory of my beloved, John Russell Egner, who put up a brave struggle to overcome the challenges severe environmental illness placed on his life.

    What you are doing for people with this illness is substantial. $400 means everything to some of us. I love you, Julie. Your friend, Raven

    What a wonderful organization. I’m so much better now, but for the majority of my adult life I have struggled to raise a family, work, and live in environments that challenged my health. There were times that I could not afford medical care, filters, or to retrofit my home. As soon as I am able, I intend to offer financial support to this organization. I’m sorry for the loss that occurred to make this non-profit possible. Good luck in your efforts!!! I would be proud to be a part of it!!!

    I have repeatedly tried to send application for grant money that I could really use.
    The last time was my 10th try. Tried from phone and it kept saying incomplete and from pc it says 502 bad gateway.
    Can anyone help? Please?

    Hi Parka,
    I’m so sorry you are having so much trouble accessing our form. Someone else had the same error message. I checked with our website server host and everything checked out okay on our end. This is what our server host said to do:

    “The 502 error is a server gateway error, probable causes could be an active firewall blocking the connection ports, their IP address could be dynamic…means that they network may change it anytime thus does conflicts with secured sites.

    Some steps they can perform are:

    * turn their firewall temporarily off until they successfully submit their application

    * quick router reset

    * try to submit the application using a mobile device which is connected to data instead of their local wifi or wired network”

    If this is too difficult, you can send it in by mail if you can guarantee the paperwork will not be fragranced or moldy. Write to me at support@reshelter.org to get the mailing address.

    Best, Julie
