No matter how well you plan your life, things will still happen. When things get tough, you’ll want to have some people you can call to help you get through the tough times. You might have friends or family that can help, but there are also a ton of people in the community who want to help. Whether you need help with finding food, paying your bills, or getting a roof over your head, there are a lot of people out there to help you.
The best place to start would probably be 211. Just dial 211 and explain your situation and what you need. They will point you in the right direction. You can also search the 211 listings for community resources on the web by clicking here.
Another good source for resource lists can be found on the Mean Street Ministry website. Click to see their resource list.
Last, but not least, you can contact your Chafee worker for more lists of available community resources.
