WHAT WE DO
JUMP operates a drop-in emergency assistance center, open weekday mornings and offering:
1. Hospitality and spiritual care, which for us means a cup of coffee, snacks, and compassionate and friendly staff who listen, support, problem-solve and make referrals to other agencies as needed.
2. Financial assistance with basic needs through vouchers at local businesses. Vouchers can be used for food, gasoline, bus passes, laundromat use, identification, utility payments, and medication.
3. Take-away items based on family size such as food, toiletries, household cleaners and baby care items.
4. Vouchers for used clothing and household goods at local thrift stores, membership at Opportunities Credit Union, informed referrals to other services, and free books for children and adults (including spiritual support books from many faith traditions and non-religious support books).
