Providing emergency financial assistance with things like rent and transportation ensures that a one-time issue doesn’t result in homelessness.
We work to stabilize the whole family because when families thrive, so does Bucks County.
When families aren’t stable, neither are our communities. That’s why we fight for the financial stability of every person in Bucks County. We remove barriers to employment and step in to help fill the gaps during times of need.
We provide targeted assistance to promote self-sufficiency, employment, and learning. We continuously improve safety net programs and step in to support families during tough times so that short-term hardships don’t spiral out of control.
