When seeking agency support, government agencies play a crucial role in providing a wide range of services. Whether you require financial assistance, healthcare support, or housing options, the following government agencies can assist you:

  • Department of Social Services (DSS): DSS offers a variety of programs, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and Medicaid. Their website provides detailed information on eligibility criteria and how to apply for assistance.
  • Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD): HUD offers resources for individuals and families facing housing challenges, such as affordable housing programs, rental assistance, and foreclosure prevention. Navigating their programs can be complex, but our compiled resources will guide you through the process.
  • Department of Health and Human Services (HHS): HHS provides valuable support in areas such as healthcare, mental health services, and substance abuse treatment. Their website offers information on available programs and how to access them.

Non-Profit Organizations

In addition to government agencies, non-profit organizations are crucial in providing agency support within our community. These organizations often focus on specialized areas and offer targeted assistance. Consider exploring the following non-profit organizations:

  • The Salvation Army: Known for its wide range of services, The Salvation Army provides aid in areas such as emergency relief, rehabilitation programs, and affordable housing initiatives. Their website offers helpful information on their various programs and how to receive assistance.
