• New River Community Action
Emergency Assistance/Housing Counseling programs have revised operating procedures in response to the coronavirus pandemic. To help protect employees, volunteers, and clients, NRCA emergency assistance staff will respond to requests for services and conduct intake interviews over the phone.
Temporary regulations prevent the disconnection of utilities, so utility assistance is suspended until further notice. Staff or volunteers will distribute food, diapers, and formula outside on office porches or in parking lots. Persons homeless or in imminent danger of homelessness may call to request assistance.
