Our financial assistance helps members of the Clarke, Oconee, Jackson, Madison, and Oglethorpe counties. We help pay utility bills and rent. We also help by referring clients to other outside charities if we can not help or they need more assistance than we can provide. To sign up for financial assistance, view the dropdown menu:
