LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Lafayette Transitional Housing center is trying to win $25,000. In order to win the cash, they need help from the Greater Lafayette community.

The State Farm Neighborhood Assist Program is giving money to non-profit organizations. 200 organizations have been chosen for the voting part. The top 40 with the highest votes will win the $25,000.

"It's across the country," said LTHC Homeless Services Executive Director Jennifer Layton. "In fact, there's only five other organizations from Indiana that are in the top 200 so we are really excited about this opportunity."

LTHC would use the money for its Employment Services Program that started last November. Since then, they've helped more than 200 of their guests who are experiencing homelessness obtain work.

"We actually have an employment specialist who will sit down one on one with each guest on really what their employment needs are and try to break through any barriers that someone has in order to get them into employment," Layton said.

The last time we checked, LTHC held spot number 94 out of 200. Voting ends on Friday at 11:59 p.m. To vote click here.
