Friends in Sonoma Helping offers a variety of programs and services to those in need within the community when funds are available. These services may include emergency rent assistance. Requests for rental or utility assistance require a private interview and generally, a site visit. Due to limited finances, clients are usually allowed financial help once, although there have been exceptions. When possible, a referral to another program may also be suggested. Please contact them directly for more information about services that may be available to you or to schedule an appointment.
