The First Stop Help Center is a compassionate resource for families and individuals in crisis. We can provide emergency funds to prevent homelessness. If you are experiencing a short-term financial crisis due to unexpected expenses - such as medical bills, loss of income, auto repair etc - we may be able to help you with rent so you are able to stay in your home. When a family is in danger of losing its home, First Stop Help Center may be able to help prevent eviction. Preventing homelessness costs at least five times less than helping a family regain stable housing after it is lost.
