"About the issues I get everyone hot and bothered I'm your host. Kerry, Greg and one thing they get Philly residents hot under the collar is when a little. Thing like owing fifty bucks stops you from, doing big things like going to the doctor or just living life well a young couple made headlines recently because they saw this problem and decided to fix it we. Have practitioner yellow Monty. And Elston he they are, founders of the shift fund a. Philadelphia nonprofit. That provides small grants that make a huge difference. With me in. The studio to discuss their. Effort is Elton and. On the phone we have. His lovely wife Pratt to show welcome to flashpoint thank you thank? You. For having congratulations on getting married recently, that's pretty awesome that's a big deal you you're a doctor Elston you're a. Law business student you both kind of saw the same problems from your own perspective yes so, before going back to grad school I was working in finance and in the The workhouse seeing a lot of small sums credit card. Co pays a lot of smoke. Doctor bills is, kind of, stop people from leaving their license from making progress fifty dollars one hundred dollars with stop people from doing why one common thing we've seen is anytime you interact with the criminal Justice system whether. You're, ultimately found innocent or guilty or you just kind of accumulate court fees and that's usually. In the range of say sixty to. Two, hundred dollars even if you do community service etc or your found completely innocent you still owe these fees and those are non-discharge -able but without paying off at two. Hundred dollars your record. Is never cleared so always, come up if. A future lawyer. Or landlord. Runs a credit check on your background check on. You and so. That poses a really big. Barrier and you work. In the medical field so. This issue pops up a lot and what you do right Partouche? Absolutely. Just the cost of transportation to the, doctor's appointment being like fifty or sixty dollars Medical copays that. They banned would have learned done and it would be really unclear when they were. Actually paying down the loan you are decided to attempt to provide a piece of a solution by starting the shift fund what, what is the chef find a Philly based nonprofit where we're seeking to really use. Small sums on that's something we define as, generally under five hundred dollars, to make a really large impact, on. Someone's life by removing an, institutional barrier by institutional barrier, kind of means something that. There's like government barrier or some other social, barrier that's preventing someone from. Moving forward the first. Case we funded was a young man who was, ultimately arrested the age, of fourteen for. Being a participant in a robbery Hughes found not guilty but at the very end. Of trials and tribulations he had sixty dollars left of court fees but because. He couldn't pay that sixty dollars he was forced to stay on probation and when You're on probation you have to keep, on senior probation officer for crime he. Didn't commit Right Like this was a young man who was in, prison missing highschool at like a really pivotal time. Point and then with ultimately found to be, innocent but then couldn't what's still missing class because he had to deal with a situation that he wasn't even guilty as and when people hear something like, this he's a sixty. Dollars why couldn't he just paid sixty dollars sixty dollars when you don't have it is as much as six thousand dollars and so you all push our own money in. There and then when you got, married you had all your friends and family donate through our own finds some corporate grants and also our wedding, register you raised today around thirty five thousand and that's really do to generosity are essentially friends and. Family that money while may not seem like a huge amount given the really Balsams we're working, with it's allowed us to find a decent amount cases and allowed us to continue working with our partners community organizations as. Well and who do you guys work? With To work with the why therapy, the Spencer thing reentry program which is really great. Work with news or transitioning out of the, Justice system we also work with Paola which is community legal services we worked with the juvenile Law Center we work with you build we really have been, trying to extend our. Reach to as many community touch points as we can so basically community organizations can reach out to the shift fund and say hey we might have some folks that could. Use your help it's right it's, through our partnership mono were able to leverage like all the great work that's already been done and just kind, of come in and hey whatever Bill or fee that kind of like the last existing barrier for. Their existing clients what's your vision for the shift fund it's kind of twofold one is in, the immediate term just to continue expanding affiliated with different organizations and ramping up types of cases we find I think eventually. This is a very scalable model where There are already like advocates in every community doing awesome work with their clients and I think shift. Can leverage that work in basically every city or every region so I, think, long term we wanna take shifts national tell us where. People can. Number one community groups can reach out to and then also where people want to donate the we have a website shift fun Di, gives, where, we both have a donation page and also a contact forms and we've actually source a. Decent number of cases through that contact? Form so it's definitely. There please please reach out to shit fund if there's you think there's an interesting.
