These problems include job loss, abandonment or death of a supporting family member, and medical expenses, such as prescription costs, not covered by insurance. We want to help anyone who truly needs our assistance, but in order to verify a need really exists, applicants are required to fill out a detailed application before help is provided. We do not charge for assistance, however we do encourage recipients to become involved in our volunteer programs. How Do People Hear About Us?
