South County Community Services has received funding for providing assistance to families and individuals in our services area who have been impacted by COVID-19. This fund will be used to assist with basic needs like transportation, food, utilities, and housing. We recognize that many people are in this situation for the first time and that they may not know who to turn to. If you talk with someone in the south county area (Prairie Ronde, Schoolcraft, Brady, Climax, Wakeshma, and Pavilion townships—plus Vicksburg and Schoolcraft schools) and they need help paying their bills, getting to work, or getting food for their family, please send them to us! Even if they have applied for assistance in the past and been denied, they may be eligible now. We are doing our best to make this program accessible to everyone and need your help! Reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
