How to get financial assistance

Provide your family with hope for a better future

There are times when all families around the world struggles in some way or another.  Whether you have lost your job, received an eviction notice or are having problems paying for food.  Fortunately, there is help available in almost any community.  Help give your family hope for a brighter future.  If you are the one that is in need and struggling don’t feel embarrassed to ask for help even if it is just for a short period of time. 

The Salvation Army:  The Salvation Army is part of the Christian church and is based on the bible.  The Salvation Army is motivated by God and its mission is to help people with needs.  They provide emergency assistance for rent, utilities, medications or other shelter needs.  They also provide people with free voicemail for those that do not have phone service.

The Food Pantry:  Many grocery stores and other convenient stores donate to The Food Pantry to help people who aren’t as fortunate to be able to receive a healthy amount of food.  The Food Pantry usually provides healthy foods such as cereal, fruits, milk, crackers, healthy meals and more.  Many communities will allow you to come in, shop, and pick out a certain amount of items depending on the size of your family.

The American Red Cross: The American Red Cross provides assistance to people who are victims of disasters.  This organization is led by volunteers and helps provide hope for a better future.  The American Red Cross may provide shelter or housing if you qualify.
