Sometimes simply finding the right place to start asking for help can be a challenge. At Hand in Hand, our outreach team works one on one with clients to assess their needs and create an action plan to best support them. This plan may include Hand in Hand resources or referrals to external resources.

A Consultation is required to receive financial assistance from Hand in Hand. Financial assistance requires proof of income, expenses, and disconnection/eviction notice, if applicable.

Consultation appointments are held M-F 9:00 am – 4:00 pm and last 30-45 minutes. No appointments are scheduled from 12:00 – 1:00 pm. Appointments can be scheduled one of three ways:
