What to expect:
After your request for an interview is received, a volunteer will contact you via email to set up the interview. During this pandemic, our parish will not be conducting face to face interviews. Please be prepared to explain what created your crisis and to discuss all household income and expenses. Our parish may require that you or others in your home search for work or apply for other benefits to improve your situation before we offer assistance. We may also require you to access services at another agency before being interviewed, if we believe they can better meet your needs. Our parish cannot guarantee that if you are interviewed, you will be offered assistance. If you are approved for financial assistance, all checks are mailed directly to the vendor.
Documents that may be requested:
Government issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.) for each household member 18 years and older.
Proof of all household income. ·
Expense receipts for the circumstance you identify as creating your crisis. (Ex: car repair, home repair, etc.) ·
Utility disconnect notice if requesting utility assistance. The account must be in the name of someone residing in the home.
Court eviction notice if requesting rental assistance.
St. Kateri Tekakwitha - Emergency Assistance Program (SKT-EAP) mails checks directly to the vendor (i.e. utility company, landlord, etc.)
