Emergency Financial Assistance

Emergency Financial Assistance

Each year, Help*Works Community Resource offers emergency assistance to those in need, providing essentials that many of us take for granted.  Help*Works annually assists more than 1,000 families living at or below the poverty level.  Recently most of those we serve have never had to ask for help before. Referrals to Help*Works come from the Dept. of Social Services, the Dept. of Health, the Office of Mental Health, Salvation Army, churches, and other community agencies and organizations as well as self-referrals.

Help*Works Community Resource has provided Livingston County individuals and families who are struggling in poverty with:

  • Direct emergency assistance including food, utilities, rent, gas, diapers and other personal items.
  • Furniture assistance*
  • Guidance on budgeting and energy conservation
  • Information and referrals to other agencies that might best assist with a client’s needs
