We take requests for financial assistance every Monday morning. The phone line opens promptly at 9:00 am and remains open until noon. Our Emergency Services Coordinator will make appointments for the first ten eligible callers. You are eligible to receive cash assistance only once per year. Appointments are limited and based on a weekly budget. The number to request financial assistance is 402.327.6242.

Until further notice, phone interviews are replacing in-­person appointments.
