The majority of CUOC in-house and financial programs exist to meet short-term crisis needs.  Assistance is given to those individuals who can demonstrate they are experiencing a temporary emergency situation beyond their control.  

When applying for assistance, clients complete a simple request form and are interviewed by staff.  the interview is used to verify the circumstances surrounding the request and to determine what type of help is needed.

The CUOC pantry program has a "blanket" policy meaning all who request help with food receive it.  However, clients from areas that have community food pantries are encouraged to apply at those pantries for on-going needs.  Families generally receive enough food in a typical "food basket" to feed their family for a week.  Frequency is determined by severity of "need".
