Description: Crisis Office   

    The Crisis Office is open Monday from 1:00 p.m. to 2 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for food only; and Tuesday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m to 11 a.m. and from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Services are on a first-come first-served basis and limited by volunteer/staff availability. Clients should arrive prior to 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. for a greater chance of being served. Hours of operation are also impacted by staff availability and the availability of resources.

Description of the Crisis Office program:

The Crisis Office offers assistance to low income persons unable to provide for the basic necessities such as shelter, food and clothing.

Assistance is given by linking clients with existing community resources and by providing direct assistance where gaps occur.

Direct services include access to our own food pantry and clothing room. Also available to clients are bus tickets, vouchers for gas, food and clothing.

Limited financial assistance is provided for rent and utilities. Financial assistance is usually limited to the last $25.00 needed to prevent an eviction or disconnect.

This program targets low-income persons or persons with no income, 18 years or older, who need short-term assistance to maintain the basic needs not being met by government programs.

* Make sure you check by calling the food pantry to confirm that they still are in operation and the hours as the hours have not changed.
