Our "Help! I'm in Crisis" fund is an emergency relief support to help those who are in crisis through circumstances that have found them in dire need.
Having had access to emergency relief funding for 44 years, unfortunately this funding was cut.
However, we believe it the utmost importance that as a community/neighbourhood centre, being often the first port of call for people who are in desperate need, that we should have the resources available to assist.
In the past we have helped women and their children who have fled from violent homes to relocate through transport costs or furniture removals, continuing education, school fees, food assistance etc.
We have also helped those who have found themselves suddenly homeless through other crises such as disasters or financial loss - mostly in circumstances beyond their control.
Key Areas of Expenditure
Purchase blankets, socks, home utensils eg heater, and other essential items
Relocation costs - transport, furniture removal and/or temporary storage costs, pet care/boarding
Continuing education, school fees, uniforms etc
As a community centre we are also able to provide wrap around services through our own programs, including the Energy Accounts Payment Assistance Scheme (EAPA), and further support and referral to other appropriate avenues of assistance, connecting people in need with the people who can help.
Most people find themselves in crisis at some point in their lives and here at
Gosford City Community & Information Services (GCCIS) we are passionate about
helping people to find relief in these times.
One day it could happen to you.
