Dedicated to Serving Our Neighbors

Faith in Action

Utility Assistance

We can help with electric, water or natural gas bills that are past due. Utility deposits are also considered in some situations.

Rent & Mortgage

Payments must be past due with a written late notice from the landlord, however, court eviction is not required. First month’s rent assistance is available; CAM does not pay rent deposits.

Food Assistance

This can be received from our on-site food pantry. The frequency ranges from once per 30-90 days depending on the client situation and our current food supply.

FEED THE NEED

The food pantry at Crisis Assistance Ministry is always in need of food. Serving approximately 330 families a month, creates a new need every day.

We also rely on your donations to provide monetary supports to those needing crisis assistance.

Volunteer

In 2018-2019 our volunteers gave 6,730 hours of their time to Crisis Assistance Ministry. We need volunteers in many different capacities to be able to serve our neighbors in need.  Are you looking for a way to give back?
