About South Louisville Community Ministries Inc

Last-Modified: 2024-05-30 19:21:44

Through the Emergency Assistance Program, South Louisville Community Ministries is able to meet individuals and families face-to-face, to listen to their stories, and to assess their immediate, individual basic needsfood, health, utilities, and shelter.

From there, they work with local agencies and churches to meet those needs.

They meet their clients in their time of crisis: lost jobs, spouse abuse, food stamp cut-offs, water leaks, illnesses, and the list continues

They work to stabilize their situations, giving them the needed week or month to apply for longer term assistance, paying off debt, or finding a new job.

Their goal is to stabilize a clients financial situation for 30 daysensuring heat, lights, water, and shelter.

SLCM assists with:

LG&E payments on brown bills, accounts that have had the service disconnected, or previous balances that must be paid prior to connection at a new residence.

Payments for cut-off notices on water bills or accounts that have had service disconnected.

Shelter payments where the client has received a late notice or eviction notice for rent, a late fee or a foreclosure notice on mortgage, or deposit first month's rent due for new accommodation.

Medications (that are medically necessary and not a controlled substance).

With this program funds are sometimes available for glasses and limited medical equipment as well.

Mission Statement: Our mission is to empower our neighbors in crisis to move toward stability and self-sufficiency. We do this by demonstrating respectful compassion; practicing faithful stewardship; and providing: • emergency assistance with food, medicine, housing and utilities • comprehensive referral services and partnerships (individual, family and marriage counseling) • daily enrichment services for senior adults

I am looking for assistance with my rent and water bill. My landlord has been very patient and understanding, but he has children enrolled in school and bills of his own he has to pay. My boyfriend and I always paid our rent and utilities before Covid-19. We paid them while I was receiving my unemployment with the boost. I did not get behind till I lost the boost in unemployment. I have severe COPD and not able to return to work at this time. I am actively seeking schooling and opportunities to work from home, but due to the fact I don't have a computer or internet I am very limited. I am also trying to find a program that might help me with acquiring a computer or laptop so I can expand what I am able to do from home. If there is help available for me through your program?

I owe 2 mos. Rent from last fall, my landlord has been very patient with me. I have applied for food stamps several times, either it didn't go through or I have repossess it again. I had to take early retirement last fall because unemployment would not return my calls, and still haven't, they owe me pandemic pay for all this time, I believe!
