The application process requests documentation of the current residential address. Any documentation that shows the applicant’s name and physical address will be acceptable. Self-certification is permitted in the case of applicants who are homeless and have no current residential address.

For residents who have established themselves in the community i.e. have employment or a place of residence, may apply for short term emergency assistance in the amount of $200 and after six months of residency up to $250 of emergency type assistance, if Salvation Army funds cannot be used, as not to duplicate services. Stranded traveler, the non-county residence is not available from the organization as this is provided by Salvation Army funding.
