How Do I Apply?

To determine whether we can help you, we must screen you for eligibility. During this brief conversation, a member of our Intake team will gather demographic information, including household size, income and asset information, will conduct a required check for conflicts of interest, and get a brief description of your problem.

There are three ways to apply for our services:
