THE SOCIAL SERVICE MINISTRY provides a compassionate and realistic response to families and individuals in crisis. Persons applying need to be below 200% of the federal poverty guideline (approx. $48,500 for a family of four).

During the one-on-one interview with the emergency assistance case manager, solutions to the underlying cause of the crisis are addressed through referrals and advocacy. It is our goal to achieve long-term solutions to problems in order to enhance family stability.
