Helping Hands

Emergency Financial Assistance

The Helping Hands (Emergency Financial Assistance) program gives a helping hand, especially with the seasonal nature of many jobs on the islands. We understand emergencies happen and are here to help get you back on your feet.

F.I.S.H. is able to provide necessary help with rent, utilities, medical or dental needs, healthcare, adult and youth scholarships and more.

Our social services department reviews each case before considering applicants and certain documentation is required for consideration. Our goal is to give you a “hand up” to meet your greatest potential and live a secure, self-sufficient life.

The required program forms are available for download below – fill them out and collect all necessary documentation for a quicker process. Appointments are required and can be made by contacting our Walk-In Center by phone at 239-472-4775.
