In emergency situations, our Financial Aid program provides community resource information and monetary assistance for rent, utilities, medications, and transportation.
Guests must have an eviction notice and a means of sustaining themselves during the months ahead. An average of $250 is given in one time assistance.
When denied assistance by the LEAP program, guests may apply to our utility assistance program that is primarily funded by the Energy Outreach Colorado Foundation. A guest may be funded only once each year. Catholic Outreach is the only agency in Mesa County offering utility assistance from May through October.
Persons with no insurance and with referrals from another agency or a doctor are assisted in getting medications on an emergency basis.
Bus tickets are available for emergency situations. Gas vouchers are available for persons stranded in Grand Junction.
Identification and Documents
Assistance in obtaining ID's or other documents is given to persons who are homeless.
