Community Resources

Now, more than ever, we all need a helping hand. Please reach out to the organizations listed below — you do not need to be a client or member at any of the organizations to ask for help. Demand is very high, so expect to wait, leave your name and phone number and call back again if you don’t hear back. Helping Our Women staff can help follow-up your inquiry, but most of these agencies want to hear directly from you.

It’s okay to ask for help –  We are all in this together!
