Emergency Assistance

Helping Hands

If you or your family are immediate need of food, clothing, or household items, Community Action of Greene County is here to help. We can provide immediate emergency assistance, as well as connect you to a variety of resources in Greene County and surrounding communities.

Emergency Resources

  • Emergency Food Pantry: Funded through the Emergency Food & Shelter National Board Program and the generosity of concerned churches, civic groups, schools, and individuals, Community Action of Greene County, Inc. operates an Emergency Food Pantry. Those requesting services are provided with a three-day supply of food and are asked to complete an intake and brief interview. The consumer may then be referred to other supports within the agency or community that may be of assistance to them. Monday, Thursday & Friday, 2:00pm-4:00pm
  • Clothing & Household Items: We maintain a voucher program with our Thrift Store to provide emergency assistance, and necessary items to fire victims and others in emergency situations with no resources.
