How to Determine Your Eligibility

- Drivers license or Michigan ID.

- Pertinent eviction or shut-off notice if requesting financial assistance. Bring any relevant documentation pertaining to the emergency situation.
Community Sharing makes certain that teachers, social workers and counselors in the Huron Valley School District (HVSD) are familiar with our support services. This information can then be shared with a child's parent(s) and together they may identify ways we can help.
