Emergency Assistance & Client Advocacy
Wherever possible, our goal is to prevent crisis through proactive planning and personal finance consultation.
Our Client advocates can help:
- Identify potential sources of assistance
- Complete scholarship or assistance applications
- Assist with the Medicaid and Kidcare/CHIP insurance programs
- Facilitate payments and/or establish payment plans
- Provide general explanation of complicated billing and payment systems
Through the Emergency Assistance Fund, One22 provides temporary aid to eligible households and individuals who are facing severe financial difficulties due to unexpected circumstances, either with short-term assistance or more specialized financial and counseling aid to regain stability.
Examples of emergency circumstances include:
- Loss of employment
- Terminal illness or death
- Severe illness and/or urgent medical care
- Natural disaster
- Loss of housing
Our goal is to bring temporary relief to crisis situations, as well as lasting stabilization and recovery, by identifying all resources available (benefits, social service referral, and financial aid.
Limited financial aid is offered after a thorough review process which involves a caseworker’s consultation, coordination with One22’s client service team, followed by presentation and review by a Determination Committee comprised of experienced and compassionate community members who have offered philanthropic supported to the Emergency Assistance Fund.
The Emergency Assistance Fund is a restricted fund housed at One22 that is comprised of donations from generous community members, the Salvation Army and the Community Service Block Grant.
