Our Assistance Programs
Monetary limits on medicine, fuel, rent and utility assistance follow the guidelines, established by the Board of Directors. From time to time, with permission of the Executive Board, slight increases are available on a case-by-case need. The volunteers attempt to get matching funds from outside sources in extreme emergencies, especially medical needs. All monetary assistance is based on the funds available. Our primary goal is FOOD, to feed our neighbors in need. The ability to increase monetary assistance on a regular basis is one of the items on our Goals and Wish List.
