Essential Services: Helping Neighbors Overcome Roadblocks

 

At Greer Relief, we understand that access to resources is essential for overcoming life’s challenges. That’s why we’re committed to providing support to our neighbors in need.

Hunger is Invisible

 

It can be challenging to recognize the families struggling to afford three meals a day. Unless hunger is extreme, it often goes unnoticed. At Greer Relief, we’re dedicated to making hunger invisible—not because it’s hard to detect, but because it shouldn’t exist.

Food Choice Pantry

Greer Relief offers a food choice pantry to assist our neighbors in need who qualify for support. Our pantry allows individuals to shop according to their dietary needs, much like they would in a grocery store. Commonly requested items include:

Food

Pasta Sauce
Jelly
Mashed Potatoes
Instant Oatmeal/Grits
Cereal

Household Items

Multipurpose Cleaner
Shampoo
Laundry Soap
Toothpaste
Deodorant

Baby Items

Diapers
Baby oil
Baby powder

Financial Assistance

Greer Relief provides financial assistance to neighbors in need so that they may remain in their homes. Through case management we assess what underlying causes contributed to their current circumstances and we refer them to the best resource to improve their predicament in the long term as well as the short term.

Step 1. Neighbor Stability
After assessing a neighbor’s completed application, our neighbor advocate determines what financial assistance is needed. Emergency assistance may include:

  • Food assistance
  • Case Management
  • Financial Aid for:
    • Rent/Mortgage
    • Utility/Heat Bills
    • Life-Sustaining Prescription Drugs
