Emergency Assistance

Emergency Assistance

UCHM provides support for individuals and families in our community who find themselves in emergency situations. Funding is provided in part by our local churches, individual donations and by Louisville Metro Community Services & Revitalization. Emergency Assistance is supported by Dare to Care, Louisville Metro Office of Resilience and Community Services, local businesses, UCHM’s 21 member churches, and individual supporters.

United Crescent Hill Ministries’ Emergency Assistance programs serves the needs of those living in the 40206 zip code. If you require another neighborhood ministry that might be of service to you, please visit the member listing page of Louisville’s Association of Community Ministries here.
