Services may also assist with residents who are facing tax foreclosure, late mortgage and rent payments. Other services offered include transportation assistance for individuals looking for or have employment and those in need of burial assistance.
* NOTE: Clients facing an emergency utility situation are encouraged to go to Crisis Assistance Ministry who operates the Crisis Intervention Program on behalf of Mecklenburg County Department of Social Services.
