We want to change that because we care about everyone in all of these counties.

If you live in these counties, or know of anyone who does, and you need assistance with your rent and/or utility issues, we are here to help. Our funding is limited, but we are committed to serving the residents of the above-listed counties with the resources entrusted to us with due diligence.
