About the Emergency Assistance Program

The Emergency Assistance Program was established to assist families and individuals in crisis with an immediate emergency, particularly when facing the disconnection of their power or water. Our assistance is designed to be a temporary measure only. Case managers work with each client to connect them with resources that can provide more permanent help. The financial assistance has been possible through the generosity of our community partners including our Faith Based partners, Dominion, NOVEC, Quickies, American Water, Columbia Gas, Salvation Army and Francis House
