Policy for 3rd Place Ministries Crisis Fund
The objective of the 3rd Place Ministries Crisis Fund is to provide local residents with emergency assistance to help get them back on their feet. We offer assistance to victims of housefires, flooding, and other natural disasters, including Recovery Kits of clothing, toiletries, and linens.
We offer assistance with utility bills (gas, electric, water), non-narcotic prescription medication, emergency automobile gas, and similar urgent needs. And through our New to You Shop we are able to provide vouchers for childrenís school clothing or appropriate outfits for a job interview.

The following guidelines are utilized in dealing with each request for assistance:
This Crisis Fund is overseen by the Director of 3rd Place Ministries. The Director is generally available at our New to You Shop (17 Cope Road, Benton) from 9-noon on Tuesdays.
