1. Contact us. Use the button above, or send us an email and let us know that you would like to apply.
2. Schedule an Informational Meeting. Once we have your contact information, we will let you know when we will be holding the next information meeting!
3. Gather and submit "supporting documents". You will hear more detail about this at your information meeting, but you can start by putting aside documents that show how much you and the members of your household earn (if employed) or showing unemployment status, how many people are in your household, your identification, and any other information you would like us to consider.
4. If you are awarded a Self-Reliance Scholarship, a Foundation staff member will begin setting you up with a local self-defense training program and will set up a payment plan for your $30 portion of the membership fees. If you cannot pay the $30 per month due to extreme financial hardship, please tell us so that we can try to help.
Take your life into your hands in a great way! Work towards better physical and mental health, learn how to defend yourself, and become part of your larger local community. Make the decision to make a change, and your hard work will pay off! No matter what the cost of the program, all you will pay if you qualify is $30/month per family member.
