Wesley House assists people with their rent, utilities and prescription medications after appropriate documentation is provided. Each applicant must provide specific documentation which is reviewed carefully in order to determine eligibility. We cannot review applications or discuss application statuses via social media messaging or email.
We offer a large clothing room and food pantry that serve many people in the area. We distribute clothing on Fridays from 9am to 11am on the Playground for Jesus. We distribute food bags on Wednesdays from 1pm to 4pm. You must present a photo ID to receive a food bag and we allow one food bag per family per month. The food distribution is a drive through style distribution so you don’t have to get out of your car.
During the holidays, Wesley House provides Thanksgiving food bags to qualified applicants and at Christmas, families can receive food bags and toys for their children. The application period for holiday assistance begins in October. If you would like to apply, please come by our offices and fill out an application.
“Wesley House gave my family a chance to enjoy the journey of life during some very difficult times we faced. They are not only an amazing ministry, but a place of refuge and hope!”
Criteria for Assistance
We offer bill pay assistance toward prescriptions, utilities, and housing. These funds may only be applied annually to a member of each household. The distribution of funds is based on our budget, donations, and the number of requests we are able to assist, therefore, we may typically only be able to offer $100. per application. This is a very subjective decision and we try to assess needs based on the following:
With our assistance, will the individual be able to sustain themselves (pay their own bills) in the future. We look for individuals to participate in their own restoration as well. Therefore, employment or income of some type is necessary.
Range of Bill
How much assistance is needed. Bills that are left for several months and accrue a large balance may be out of the range for the assistance we can offer.
Threat to Life
Is there an imminent threat to one’s life without assistance.
