Our Financial Assistance Program assists individuals and families in the Greater Williamsburg area who, without our assistance, would become homeless.
We assist with eviction prevention and utility disconnect notices, and provide supportive services to assist program participants to become stable in the short term and successful in the years beyond.
Additionally, when families visit Williamsburg House of Mercy seeking emergency assistance, they are screened for other needs which House of Mercy or other community partners can help with. Once other areas of need are identified, families are invited to participate in programs aimed at reducing the families’ need to rely on emergency assistance.
Special programs run seasonally. Check out our calendar for dates and information:
June-August ~ Summer Reading and Feeding
