Our Services

We provide compassionate support to individuals in need. Characteristics of those we help span a wide range of ethnicities, ages, nationalities and religions. We help regardless of gender, education and family or household status.  We work to overcome a lack of interpreters and, when possible, serve those who speak little or no English. Our services include:

  • Emergency financial assistance for rent and eviction notices
  • Financial assistance for utilities and shut-off notices
  • Emergency food boxes to help our clients during times of food insecurity
