Rent and Utility Assistance Services for Counties: Lamar, Pike, Spalding, And Upson

GRIFFIN - The Salvation Army here at Griffin, Georgia services the counties of Lamar, Pike, Spalding, and Upson for these communities’ social service needs. Many individuals utilize our House of Hope Homeless Shelter, Clothing Voucher, and Food Pantry programs from these counties, but they do not take advantage of our Rent and Utility Assistance Program. 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. To apply, contact us at 770-412-6561 to discuss your concerns and/or schedule an appointment. We look forward to serving you. God Bless You.
