How we can help



Qualifying neighbors can receive assistance with payment of utility bills, rent and mortgage, and help gathering necessary documents like birth certificates and social security cards.

To reach the Emergency Financial Assistance Hotline, call 513.271.5501, extension 50.
The Hotline opens on the last Wednesday of the month, and calls are returned on a first-come, first-served basis, with a priority on new callers. Please listen carefully when you call to make sure the Hotline is still open.
