Crisis Assistance

Connellsville Area Community Ministries can provide various types of assistance to residents of the Connellsville Area School District, who are in a time of crisis. Each request will be treated on a case-by-case basis. However, all clients will have to meet organizational and federal guidelines to qualify for crisis assistance. Due to limited funding, we are only able to help each household once in a 12-month period.
