Financially Stable Families

Helping families become stable through financial assistance and empowerment, personal resource development and disaster assistance. 

 

When families come to MAM in financial crisis, assisting with rent, utilities, transportation and clothing stops the fear of becoming homeless. If feeding their children is a hardship, helping a family apply for SNAP or TANF lessens that stress and allows them to begin making plans for the future. By combining these support systems with financial education programs, people are empowered to balance their monthly budget and dream about what seemed impossible – paying their bills on time each and every month.

Rent & Utility Assistance
Other Emergency Help (Medical, Transportation, Household/Clothing)
Benefits Enrollment
