Together We Cope assistance helps people get back on their feet after a financial setback.

Make the south suburban community stronger by donating to Together We Cope to assist families in temporary crisis.

Host a food drive. Whether it be a food drive, a personal care products drive, or a baby supplies drive – drives are important. Ask your church, school, business or organization to host a drive. We will provide collection bins in advance and pick them up when you’re done.

Donate food. Bring food that you can’t use to the back door of Together We Cope during business hours.
