All of us go through rough patches in our lives and need a little extra help to make ends meet. We have compiled a list of local resources that are available to you. Many of them are funded by your tax dollars, and are available to anyone who makes less than $57,000 for a family of 4. Please make use of these organizations and tell your neighbors about them as well. We are a community, and we are here for each other. This site is a work in progress, so please check back often for more additions.
