Key Rings program targets stable housing through financial literacy and improved money management. Private donations and grants from Savings Bank of Danburyand Newtown Savings Bank helps to support the program. Funding for the security deposit assistance grants is provided through a CDBG grant from the City of Danbury. Key Rings is a one-time only grant and when the family moves, the security deposit is returned to TBICO/Key Rings by the landlord so that it can be used to help another family. With the majority of our families remaining housed for long periods of time, the number of returned security deposits is low so we rely on the community to help us keep area families housed and healthy by donating to support the Key Rings Program!
