Common Good Voucher Program

OneSource Center is committed to supporting nonprofit organizations delivering on their missions to meet the needs of our community. Our Common Good Voucher Program is designed to support agencies that provide essential household and personal items to individuals in need through their programs.

The 2021 Common Good Voucher Program will allow OneSource Center to provide vouchers to participating OneSource Center member organizations that are redeemable by your clients while shopping in our Common Good Warehouse. Through grant funding we are able to provide these vouchers at no cost to the participating agencies. The agencies will determine which clients receive the vouchers based on their assessment of the client’s needs. The agency should be prepared to have an agency representative accompany clients to the OneSource Center Common Good Warehouse.

Target population is agency clientele who are low-income and in need of household goods. While we will distribute vouchers in $25 increments, the partner agency decides the total amount received by the voucher recipient. Each voucher is for a one-time visit; no credit will be issued for unused value. Merchandise received can include furniture, personal care products, kitchen equipment, household linens, toys for kids, etc.

Another way we can help is to offer you the opportunity to purchase vouchers from OneSource to give to your clients. We have one agency that we work with this way and it is a win/win for us and them. They would in most cases be providing gift cards to be used at local retailers. By providing them with vouchers from OneSource, their clients are able to get as much as three times the product to use as they need.

We focus on agencies that provide their clients with personal choice shopping. To apply for vouchers please complete the application and return to byantek@onesourcectr.org.

Funding for the Common Good Voucher Program is provided through grants from the Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation, Lutheran Church of the Resurrection and the John A Schroth Family Charitable Trust at PNC Charitable Trust.
