The staff at Community Action House makes every effort to treat all people with respect and fairness, and to provide knowledgeable, culturally competent services to members of the community. As a client, you have the right to receive services that you are eligible for; we cannot always provide every service for every client, but whenever possible, we will provide referrals and information about alternative community resources.
Emergency Services Program
Emergency Services, including food, diapers, baby food and formula, hygiene and cleaning products are available on a walk-in, emergency basis. Applicants meet with a case manager in order to assess their situation and to determine eligibility.
Applicants must live in the 49423, 49424, or 49460 and have a valid id AND proof of address (must be less than 90 days old) to be assessed for services.
Applicants MUST arrive and complete paperwork for services at least 30 minutes prior to closing time in order for their application to be processed. High demand for services sometimes limits the number of people we can assist each day. It is recommended that applicants arrive as early as possible, or call ahead of time to verify they will be seen that day.
