Emergency Assistance Program

JF&CS responds to community needs in a multitude of ways. One of the ways is through our emergency assistance program. The mission of the program is to help people in economic crisis help themselves. We do so with dignity, respect, and confidentiality.

Funds come from a variety of sources with varied forms of eligibility. During this COVID-19 pandemic, additional funds have been made available for families in need.

You are not alone. We are here to help.

Please complete this screening form to be considered for assistance.

Getting Help

When funds are available, all callers first receive a basic telephone screening. If they are eligible for services, they are asked to provide documentation substantiating their needs, such as an overdue utility bill or cut-off notice, a lease or mortgage statement, social security card and government issued photo identification.

In addition to assisting with an immediate need, our staff will help to connect the individual to other community programs and resources.
