Housing & Financial Assistance
We fill a critical need for families in need of financial and housing assistance.
Helping Families In Need
We work hard to ensure families in need of housing and financial assistance receive the assistance they need - even coordinating temporary emergency housing in times of crisis. Every day of the year, we receive phone calls from individuals in need of rent assistance, energy assistance, and financial assistance in general to help them avoid disconnection of utilities or eviction from their homes. Our program is designed for those in our service area needing emergency help, regardless of income.
Many of the families we help are hard-working families that have fell on hard times and need help paying bills. We are there to provide hope during troubling times and fill their need.
