Many individuals working in the service industry are mostly not working or working reduced hours. We know that you were already on the bubble – just one incident away from not being able to pay your rent or utilities. COVID-19 is pushing many of you over that edge. We know you are hard working people who are barely getting by so you haven’t been able to put anything away into a rainy day fund. Yes, you can’t be evicted or have your electricity shut off during this time, but those bills will still need to be paid.
That’s why we established the United Way COVID-19 Relief Fund. Wells County is a blessed community and many individuals and businesses have donated generously to help you get through this crisis.
If you have been impacted by COVID-19 with reduced hours at work, job loss, being quarantined or have tested positive for COVID-19, please submit an application for assistance for rent/mortgage, utilities or other pressing needs. We do not want you to get behind in these payments because it is so difficult to catch up again. Click here for an application for individuals.
