Sometimes, life challenges occur through job loss, reduction of wages, illnesses or unexpected expenses. Any of these things can lead to tremendous financial hardship. If you are facing eviction, utility disconnection, or other difficult financial situations as a result of a recent crisis, Community Assistance Center is here to help you.
For financial assistance (rent/mortgage/utilities) please call to schedule an appointment.
