Sometimes, a relatively small amount of assistance can help avert a crisis or, help a person bring stability to their life so they can re-enter the workforce. The Benevolent Program is available 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday for those who are facing a crisis and need help managing sizeable bills like their power bills. People also receive counselling so they can prepare to move forward in life and are able to be employed. The volunteer coordinator talks them through their challenges, how to overcome obstacles and can secure items like a pair of steel-toed work boots if that’s what they need. In 2014, more than 500 people received help with individual issues because some by some who listened.
