If you need support, please call the office or email us during opening hours as a first step. For utility shutoffs and evictions, we ask that you apply for State Emergency Relief first through DHHS or MIBridges - www.michigan.gov/mibridges
Anyone we assist with financial support is required to be interviewed by one of our caring volunteers over the phone. During that confidential meeting, we will assist you in identifying your most crucial needs, complete an intake questionnaire, and identify the services we offer that can help you. On many occasions, we also have knowledge and contact information of resources for those needs outside of our scope. We will pray for you and your family if you wish it.
Before we can help with any financial assistance we require copies of the past due or shutoff notice, eviction notice or lease. We also need to see proof of income and any DHHS decision notice. To help you efficiently and as quickly as possible you must get these documents to us either through email or make arrangements to drop them off at our office.
