Community Response Application


***Please be advised that financial assistance through Central Navigation was paused on October 11th, 2021. We will follow up with you regarding your application approval/denial. Going forward, we will be unable to process applications for financial assistance until the first of the year.

At this time, we are working with other community resources to meet housing and utility needs through the end of the year.  As a part of Central Navigation, we will conduct a thorough search of local resources based upon the applications we receive from either the website or your organization. For additional supports, such as transportation and concrete support (clothing, daily living/hygiene, food, etc.), Central Navigation will continue to guide families through program requirements and coaching opportunities. For general updates and community resources, please keep checking our website and Facebook page.  ***
