The Bridge Penn-York Valley Churches - Emergency Financial Assistance
Vouchers are issued for emergency assistance by voucher writers associated with the member churches of The Bridge to those who qualify. Vouchers are mainly issued for:
Shelter for people facing eviction (need an eviction notice), needing a security deposit to secure housing, or needing overnight shelter.
Utilities for those in danger of having their gas, electric, or water turned off (need a shut-off notice).
Food for transients needing a meal after Food Bank hours.
Transportation for those stranded and unable to get transportation out of the community.
Other emergency situations or other monetary crises may be considered once the proper eligibility has been established.
There is a limit to what a family can receive but each case is decided on an individual basis.
