Prevail Emergency Assistance Program Volunteers

Our Prevail Emergency Assistance Program provides referrals and modest emergency financial assistance for food, housing, utilities and transportation to individuals and families at urgent risk. Our goal is to address the immediate crisis so the individual or family can work on additional steps on the path toward stability. The program's compassionate volunteers listen to each person’s individual situation and, working together with the client, use solutions-based counseling to develop a plan of action.

Please contact Hannah Williams,, for additional information regarding skills-based volunteer opportunities in this program.
