Help the Norths

$10,063 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 122 people in 32 months
Steve North and his family need your help after a devastating fire leaves them homeless, with only the clothes on their backs.

This is the second time the Norths have lost everything in a house fire. Their first house, a historic property in Toledo's Old West End, was destroyed by a fire in 2011. After rebuilding their lives, thanks to the support of the community he serves and loves, they are once again faced with tragedy.

Steve has been relentless in his efforts to end the cycle of poverty and provide life-saving medical help for Toledo's poor and unhoused. His organization, LifeLine, has a mobile medical unit that, in Steve's words, has "conducted nearly 200 mobile clinics, serving more than 1000 people living in poverty - the unhoused, migrants, refugees, and more." He also hosts monthly dinners at his home, and feeds everyone there free of charge.


It's our turn to help the helper. The Norths need literally everything. A donation of any amount will make a difference. When starting over, everything counts.

100% of your donation will go directly to Steve and his family. For more information on Steve's work in the community, visit lifelinetoledo.com. Your help is greatly appreciated.

I agree with Marcy. The small amount GoFundMe collects (7.9 per cent) is minimal to fund their business and make cash available to Steve immediately. Steve can get to it now, minus that 7.9 percent, when he needs it now , diring this trying time, and not be at the mercy of banks with limited hours and check cashing fees. Thank you Marcy for your worthy insite!

I work with Lynn, we would rather give donations right to the family. This is a great way for people who aren't in the area to help out, but I'll be collecting and giving donations directly to Lynn and Steve. Thanks for the comment Amanda! (btw, I confirmed gofundme keeps a portion of the money collected, 11% actually)

GoFundMe takes 5%. If you'd like to donate directly, I believe someone on Facebook said they were accepting checks, but I'm not sure who this was. I would get in touch with Ken Leslie from 1Matters to donate directly.

I've heard that gofundme takes a portion of donations, is this true? I'd rather donations go directly to the family "fee-free."
