Safety Net for People of All Faiths

People come through our doors when they are experiencing hard times.  There may have been a job loss, serious illness or an unexpected expense.  They are struggling to feed their families.  They can’t afford their medication and the monthly rent.  They need help.

Since 1965, our Emergency Assistance Program has played a significant role in the community, providing a safety net for people of all faiths who are trying to make ends meet.  Services include meeting  the immediate, basic survival needs of families with low-incomes so  they have enough food to prevent going to bed hungry; rent money to avoid eviction and homelessness; water to bathe in or prepare food; electricity to run a refrigerator and lights; and gas to heat their homes and cook.

Once the urgent needs are met, our case managers help those we serve identify long-term solutions that lead to self-sufficiency. If eligible, they are connected with government programs including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Women Infants and Children (WIC) and other resources that may be beneficial.

Financial education is a key component for regaining economic stability.  Counseling and classes are offered on topics such as how to budget, ways to reduce credit card debt, steps to establishing a positive relationship with a bank or other financial institution and more.
