NeighborShare’s model is to source and validate needs through vetted nonprofit partners on the ground in local communities across the country. Regrettably, this means we cannot take individual requests at this time. If you are experiencing hardship, here are a few resources we can share.
211 is the most comprehensive source of information about local resources and services in the country. You can dial 211 from almost any place in the country and confidentially speak to a trained specialist who can help connect you to local resources in your community. Call 24/7 or access information online at 211.org.
Did you know that most utility companies in the country have assistance and payment plans for those experiencing financial hardship? Some companies even offer housing or water assistance. Reach out today to find out what your options are, especially if you’re facing a utility shut-off.
211 also offers advice for those navigating healthcare and medical treatment.
