Neighbors in crisis helped by TWC

  • recently unemployed workers
  • elderly and disabled people on fixed incomes
  • grandparents unexpectedly raising children again
  • victims of fire and other disasters
  • single parents trying to make ends meet
  • people facing catastrophic medical expenses
  • underemployed workers without benefits

For example, those injured on the job, may have to stay at home for weeks to recover and during this time will receive no income, or greatly-reduced income. This is the kind of temporary crisis that Together We Cope can help with.

“They helped my family when we were in desperate need for food or Christmas gifts for the kids. They are a blessing.” — Alexis
