We strive to provide guidance and support for individuals facing financial difficulty. These efforts mainly involve the members of St. Lorenz, the 48734 zip code, and the immediate surrounding communities. Our primary emphasis is to provide basic financial guidance and advice for budgeting and debt reduction. We may also offer limited and short term financial assistance to avoid utility shut off, help with rent/mortgage, assist with food/fuel, or help overcome various other bills and debt. Community Services is not designed or prepared to provide for immediate and greater emergency needs such as homeless shelter/housing, next day utility shutoff, and the like. For these greater needs, please contact “211 Northeast Michigan” at 211 or toll-free 888-636-4211; www.211nemichigan.org.
