Central Services partners with Douglas Cherokee Neighborhood Center to provide regular and emergency rent and utility assistance for Hamblen County residents. Regular help is in the form of LIHEAP (Low Income Heating and Energy Assistance Program) through Douglas Cherokee. This program occurs every three months; see the services calendar below for specifics. Call the office for more details. Emergency rent and utility assistance is a once per year service with a specific procedure. Those wanting help should call the office (number listed above) and leave their name, phone number, and a bit more information. Then, a caseworker will call back, usually within 24 hours, to discuss need and schedule an appointment if they're able to assist.
