Helping Hands 

Phone  618.252.3931
With the help 

of county churches, community 

organizations, and supportive individuals, we are able to provide financial assistance to individuals and/or families who 

are in crisis.  

This program is not meant to provide repeated financial support, but solely for crisis situations ONLY.  It is our hope that the individuals/families that we are able to help, will become productive citizens 

in their own communities 

and help others, should the need arise.  

A database of those who have been assisted is kept up to date, so that there is no confusion as to whether or not an individual/family is eligible for assistance.
