Emergency Assistance is designed to assist with families' sporadic emergency needs, such as a utility cut-off (electric or water) or an eviction notice. The family must have a child under the age of 18, within a certain degree of kinship, living in the home, a verifiable emergency and enough monthly income to maintain the household expenses.
For more information, please call 910-219-4820.
