To qualify for possible assistance from Raising the House, the family in need MUST have a registered student in the Palmerton Area School District. The family MUST be facing a serious hardship (i.e. house fire, major medical condition, etc.). Assistance will NOT be given for rent, mortgage, or tax payments.
