Special Family Fund

We’re here to help. On a case-by-case basis, our Special Family Fund may assist our neighbors facing extraordinary circumstances including eviction, utility suspension, medical issues or rent concerns. All requests are carefully considered by a panel of case workers.

They’ve never refused open arms for me and my family. They don’t turn you away. They have a listening ear and a caring heart. And you don’t have to be hungry. You’re not alone. You can always speak to somebody, you can get help here. Jackie
