RENT & UTILITY ASSISTANCE (COMING SOON!)
We've created a supplemental rent and utility assistance program for persons unable to qualify for existing aid. This outreach endeavor is 100% funded through community donations and federal grants. Our program is scheduled to launch in the fall of 2022 in preparation for the winter months.
Eligible members' utility provider, landlord, or mortgage company will receive direct payments from Charity's Hope. Processing times may vary and are dependent upon financial availability. Rent and utility assistance is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

Those who require rent or utility assistance must meet the following eligibility criteria:
Applicants must be at least 16 years of age or older.
