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
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 Funds, housed at One22, are comprised of donations from generous community members, the Salvation Army and the Community Service Block Grant.
Newly established Critical Incident Relief Grants are special grants within One22’s Emergency Assistance Program that can be mobilized in response to unusual incidents that affect groups of people and are externally-driven, unforeseen, and expected to stabilize within a year. Examples of these include natural disaster, extreme weather, public health pandemic, catastrophic accident, or massive work loss. The first implementation of the Critical Incident Relief Grants was the Shutdown Relief Grants, launched in January 2019 in response to the temporary federal government shutdown, which began on December 22, 2018.
