Emergency relief funding

When you reach out,
we reach back.

A real human being—who really does care—thoroughly reads and reviews requests, taking every detail of every situation into account.
The application process is completely anonymous. Only Southern Smoke case workers will see an application in its entirety.
We grant funds as quickly as we can relative to the immediacy of the need, communicating application outcomes within a week or, in life-or-death cases, within a few hours.
There’s no grant cycle or deadline to apply, which means we’re able to provide support every day.
Even if you don’t qualify for funds when you apply, we’ll explain how you can next time. We’ll also point you to trusted resources in your region that can help.
