Crisis Assistance

When individuals are in crisis and cannot find their way, we provide basic necessities and help them find the path to self-sufficiency. We work with families to help map out solutions to their problems so that they can regain their dignity. We provide guidance, case management, referral and advocacy.

When available, we may also provide food, clothing and household vouchers, rent and utility assistance. Special Holiday programs are available. People in crisis need the Lord's spiritual and material help and we hope to provide it according to His holy will. This program generates no client fees for support, so donations are always appreciated.
