General Assistance

Help Give Hope’s General Assistance program has been temporarily closed for the holiday season. Check back in January, or view our other services here.

Help Give Hope offers assistance in many areas. Rental assistance, utility assistance, gas/grocery vouchers, bus passes are just a few of the ways we help. We offer gently used furniture in an emergency situation. Unexpected challenges happen to all of us and Help Give Hope is available to assist families, based on several criteria.
