How it works

We’ll consider your annual income, the number of adults and dependents in your household, and then determine assistance to align with your individual situation. Our goal is to help everyone who qualifies for assistance. If your family gets assistance through the county or other agency, please let us know. Financial assistance is possible thanks to individual and business contributions.
