Homeless Prevention & Assistance Programs

We work with those in need to place them in area shelters as well as obtaining state and local social services. We provide basic personal hygiene items to area unsheltered homeless. We work with area faith based food pantries and clothes closets to refer those in need to existing sources for these services.

FUTURE: Contingent upon future funding we plan provide needs based assistance to prevent basic utility disconnects as well as rent payment assistance; currently we connect those in need with other civic and faith based entities providing this type of assistance.
