Our Utility Assistance & Financial Aid Program is staffed with compassionate individuals who understand that it can be difficult to ask for help in the midst of a financial crisis. If you are a St. Joseph County resident and are facing any of the following difficulties, we may be able to help:

  • Disconnection notice from a utility provider
  • Utilities are currently disconnected
  • Household disaster such as a house fire or flood
  • Personal crisis such as a death in the family or fleeing from domestic abuse

For more information, please call The Family Resource Center at

Every $1000 can help 10 families in St. Joseph County. On average, The Family Resource Center receives 40 calls per week requesting assistance, but  can help only 10 families.

The Walter A. Meyer Food Pantry provides sustenance in your time of need.

Our innovative walk-through concept assists users in both obtaining emergency food for his or her household as well as learning to make healthy, economical decisions. Individuals are assigned a number of points based on household size. Each patron is able to spend his or her points in a grocery-style pantry, choosing preferred foods and household items with the assistance of a staff or volunteer. Individuals may use the food pantry once every 30 days and no more than 6 times per year.

Please bring a picture ID for all household members age 18 and over, birth certificates for all household members age 17 and under, social security cards for all household members and proof of address.
