Emergency Assistance Program
The Emergency Assistance Program (EAP) prevents displacement and homelessness by providing short term assistance for critical needs. Services are targeted to low-income families and individuals and come in the way of food, utility and rent assistance. EAP is the program that can bridge the gap between income and expenses for so many indigent families. Tangible assistance is coupled with experienced case management to meet immediate needs while also identifying those underlying needs that create ongoing financial crises.
Joy Baker Center
The Joy Baker Center is an emergency shelter for women fleeing domestic violence and homelessness. We serve women and their children with a safe place and resources to obtain permanent housing. Residents of the Center are surrounded with support and education to break the cycle of domestic violence.
“Our simplistic mission is to reach into the lives of those who are hurting, who are down, who are in need, to help them through the challenges in their lives. To carry them from where they are, to where they ought to be.”
Major David Worthy, Area Commander
