The Emergency Aid Network
The program was developed to help people in need and to help congregations and other agencies avoid duplicate efforts by central- izing services at ARC, which include:
The Emergency Aid Network provides an emergency grant to individuals or families in the greater Danbury area experiencing an emergency ~ perhaps a paycheck had to go to medical bills, or there was loss of bread- winner, or employment was interrupted.
Grants are for utility assistance, fresh food, clothing and transportation for work, or emergency shelter. Each family or house- hold may receive one grant per twelve month period.
All applicants meet confidentially
