EMERGENCY FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
We know that each of our clients has a different set of circumstances that can lead to late electric, gas, water, mortgage, or rent payments. The threat of losing any of these essential services can create extreme levels of stress, especially when paired with hunger. We also understand there may be times when our clients are having to choose whether to keep their electricity on or feed their family. For this reason, providing financial assistance for our clients is just as important as feeding them.
Our emergency financial assistance is available for all clients within the zip codes we serve in the Mesquite, Garland, Sunnyvale, Balch Springs, Seagoville, Rowlett, Rockwall, and Forney areas: 75030, 75032, 75043, 75087, 75088, 75089, 75126, 75149, 75150, 75159, 75180, 75181, 75182, 75217, 75218, 75227, 75228, 75253.
