Emergency Assistance


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)219-4866.
