Vulnerable Families

What We’re Doing

WSJA has partnered with a local ministry for single parents, which locates resources to help the families pay rent, utilities, car bills and purchase groceries in times of need, as well as collect furniture and other items to help them get back on their feet. They also support parents in their job-searching efforts if necessary, or in figuring out how to apply for food stamps and other types of regular assistance.
