The HOPE Fund

 The HOPE Fund  is available to help, offering short-term financial assistance to Sudbury residents with emergency or unexpected financial need.

Any individual or family who has resided in Sudbury for at least one year may request assistance. Names of individuals who request support are kept confidential.

Funds are available for: Fuel/Utilities, Medical Care/Medicine, Food/Special Dietary Needs, Rent/Mortgage/Insurance, Household Repairs and other needs. Funding decisions are based on individual circumstances, not specific income limits. Distributions are available up to a limit of $600 per individual or $1,200 per family in a calendar year.

Over $770,000 has been distributed through The HOPE Fund since it was established in 2002.

How Do I Request Support?

The HOPE Fund is administered in confidence by Bethany Hadvab, Sudbury Town Social Worker.  To seek assistance, residents should call 978-440-5476 and leave a message. Your call will be returned as soon as possible. You may also complete the HOPE Fund Application.


There just aren’t enough words to express how thankful I am for the financial assistance I received from HOPEsudbury. I’ve been in a tight spot for a while now, and the money provided by HOPEsudbury towards my costly heating bill will help immensely. I honestly never pictured myself in a position where I would need financial assistance, but as we all know life doesn’t always go as planned. With the support of HOPEsudbury I can now see a light at the end of the tunnel and get back on track financially. I will be forever grateful to HOPEsudbury and my goal is to one day give back.

With gratitude,
A very thankful and appreciative Sudbury resident
