At one point or another, most people face a situation that requires short term assistance. KCEOC offers a variety of services that address a variety of needs. Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides energy assistance to eligible applicants with heating resources during the winter months. Emergency Food (FEMA) program provides emergency food for eligible households that are temporarily without food. Women's Emergency Support Center provides temporary shelter for homeless women with children who fall under the McKinney Act guidelines for the homeless assistance. Emergency Fund Service, Inc. (EFSI), encourages self-sufficiency by providing the opportunity to earn small amounts of emergency money in exchange for volunteer service. Project Winter Care assists eligible families with heating cost assistance by resorting or maintaining the energy sources to their home.
Emergencies happen to everyone, and KCEOC is there to assist those in immediate need.
