Information & Assistance

Our Social Services include direct aid and guidance for individuals and families experiencing financial hardship to avoid crisis and make progress toward self-sufficiency. Our compassionate, experienced staff, case managers, and program coordinators assess individual and family needs, and partner with a diverse network of faith-based and social service agencies to meet those needs.

For Community Members in Need

  • limited, short-term assistance with rent, utilities, food, clothing, school supplies, and more, if that assistance can effectively avert a crisis and get people back on the path to financial independence.

Our services support people of all socio­economic backgrounds. They are affordable, self-directed, and culturally sensitive to help people improve their lives and thrive.
