Where can I find help with emergency housing costs, medical bills or personal debt?

Most forms of assistance for housing, medical bills or personal debt will come from charitable organizations or government assistance programs, rather than grants from foundations. Researching the few foundations that provide emergency funding to individuals takes time.

Immediate resources for funding can be obtained at local government agencies, organizations, and gifts or loans from generous individuals. You might also contact your elected officials to ask about government-sponsored or other programs for which you may be eligible.

Please visit any Las Vegas-Clark County Library District branch for more information.
