This year we have a Family Support Specialist on staff, Ms. Roby. She can assist families with programs such as the Ex-Newsboys, Thanksgiving and Christmas help, referrals for rent assistance, the Auto Repair program from United Way, Coats for Kids, food assistance, giveaways, utility assistance, as well as other community services. Currently, Ms. Roby has Ex-Newsboys vouchers for any family that may need winter coats, shoes, and clothing assistance. She is also working with multiple agencies to provide assistance to families who need Christmas and Thanksgiving help. Weekend food pantry backpacks are also available to any family who needs them. Please note, Ms. Roby works confidentially with families.
Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it, we encourage families to reach out if they could use extra support as we head into the holidays. Please contact Ms. Roby with any concerns at [email protected]
