Basic Needs

There are those in our community who struggle to afford the costs of rent, utilities, food, and clothing. All people deserve access to these basic necessities. Together we can meet the basic needs of all members of the community. 


  • Assisting clients with rental assistance (excluding security deposits)

  • Assisting clients with utility assistance (gas, propane, and/or water)

  • Addressing immediate crisis and a means to stability with food, clothing, and shelter

  • Providing relief to residents affected, including disaster case management and assistance
