Available once a month and in emergencies, a broad selection of healthy foods is provided, including fresh produce, meats, canned vegetables and fruits along with cooking and baking ingredients.
Emergency Financial Assistance
We can support various types of hardships, such as, evictions or utility shut-off if a casework assessment indicates a need.
Donated clean clothing is available to clients and rotated based on the season. Winter coats, boots, hats and gloves are often provided through volunteer run coat drives.
Our Caseworkers complete assessments, provide advocacy, and they network with other agencies to maximize needed assistance for clients.
Tutoring by volunteers, in core subjects (K thru 12), is available for all Huron Valley Schools students who participate in the Federal Lunch Program. It is not necessary to be a client family to take advantage of this service. Assistance is also provided to adults preparing for their GED. Ind addition, a team of volunteer tutors provide homework assistance to children, after school, each week.
Community Sharing works with Huron Valley School District, through their Resource Night, to assist families with questions regarding assistance. We also work with school district social workers to assist children and their families. In the absence of subsidized lunches, provided by the school district during the school year, Community Sharing has recently partnered with Meals-On-Wheels to provide summer lunches, serving over 200 children.
