Lifelines Emergency Assistance


Job loss, a health crisis, an unexpected bill, or a large increase in rent are just some of the many reasons a member of our community may find themselves in emergency financial need.


The Lifelines Emergency Assistance Program offers individuals and families facing a temporary financial emergency "bridge" support to self-sufficiency. This support may include a consultation with an experienced case worker, referrals, private access to our food pantry, and possible gift cards for basic needs like groceries, gas, and household items.


Please email or call 949.435.3460 for an appointment so we can evaluate how we might help.
