This program will provide aid for a variety of issues associated with homelessness prevention and people struggling to pay their monthly rent. They can provide rent help that can be used to stop an eviction, grants to be used for energy bills, and money for security deposits. For someone who has lost their home, they also offer rapid rehousing services.

Paperwork and Tax Information

This is a resource that provides free tax preparation and electronic filing for low-income and other struggling families through the VITA (Volunteer Tax Assistance) program maintained by the IRS. The service is free of charge to people in need. Learn more on the free income tax program.

Missouri Weatherization Assistance

A federal government funded program that helps low and middle income families become more economically secure by helping them save on their energy bills. It offers them a hand-up, not a handout. The purpose of the Weatherization assistance program is to increase the energy efficiency of dwellings (houses and rental units) that are owned or occupied by low-income persons, and in particular families with children, elderly people with disabilities, and the disabled by improving the energy efficiency of their homes, insuring their health and safety, and reducing their residential expenditures and the money they spend on heating and utility bills. Weatherization works to provide long-term solutions to energy problems, by upgrading and improving homes.
