Financial Aid

Emergency Financial Support for Low-Income Sunnyvale Residents

Many of our clients are “one bill away” from losing their home. Lack of health insurance and job benefits mean that low-income workers don’t get paid if they get sick, and they pay the full costs of their medical bills. Sadly, we are seeing more families and seniors becoming homeless. It can be hard to believe that there is hunger and homelessness in the middle of Silicon Valley, but regrettably that is the case.

Visiting Sunnyvale Community Services

Clients requesting emergency one-time financial assistance must come to our office and meet with a caseworker who will take all of the necessary information, including a local address, financial information, and other issues facing that client. Caseworkers help clients who have financial challenges create a budget that shows a path toward resolving any financial emergencies. If clients are in need of other assistance our caseworkers can refer them to the appropriate agency or resource to help.

Financial Documents

If you are a client seeking emergency financial aid, we will ask you to present a variety of documents demonstrating your financial urgency. Some of the documents you may need to bring to your meeting with a caseworker include your rental agreement, proof of totally current monthly household income, a recent bank statement, photo ID, eviction notice if applicable, and more. Please contact us and ask to speak to a caseworker who will tell you exactly what documents you need to bring to your appointment.
