Description:

Emergency Family Financial Assistance is a service within the Family-to-Family
program. The Family-to-Family program operates in Mt. Pleasant and East
Cleveland Communities. It fosters coordinated planning and services between the
County Department of Children and Family Services and the community to improve outcomes for children and families at risk of involvement or currently involved in the child welfare system, promote safety, permanency, and child wellbeing.


Emergency Family Financial Assistance is one of the intensive supports used
to protect children. This assistance is provided as part of a comprehensive service
plan that addresses the holistic needs of the family. It is not intended to supplant
or complement the family’s income, rather it is intended as a last resort necessary
to ensure that the family remains stable, thus protecting the children. Common
uses of emergency family financial assistance include rental assistance, utility
assistance, food assistance, and auto repair assistance.
