Surprises happen all the time.
We all have them. Some are wonderful and we are so grateful! However, others are not. Car accidents, unexpected loss of income, onset of a serious illness or injury, a relationship that crashes, utility bills that go through the roof.
Unless help comes quickly the consequences could trigger a downward spiral that leads to an episode of homelessness.
Emergency Assistance at PCM may be able to lend a hand with the cost of:
