Apply for Assistance

If you or someone you know is in need of help, please fill out the application and call our office to schedule an appointment.

An intake volunteer will meet with each family needing assistance. We ask that you bring along any documentation of income including:

  • Wages
  • Unemployment
  • Social Security/SSI/Disability
  • Retirement Funds/Pension
  • Child Support
  • Food Stamps/TANF
  • Income based/Section 8 Housing

Financial Help is available every 6 months to those who qualify, and up to a predetermined limit per household. The director and the board determine how much is available to help each client and how often they can apply for assistance, based on donations we receive.
