Help with Food Stamps:
Are you enrolled in the SNAP Program and have a question? Interested in learning more about the Program, or not sure if you're eligible? Each Tuesday from 1-4pm, we have a representative from DHS on-site to assist you in a friendly, informal setting. Don't go hungry - make it a point to stop by, and get the help you deserve.
Help with Rent & Utilities:
Each Tuesday @ 9:00am, we assist clients with periodic rent and utility needs, on a first-come, first-served basis. Check out some of the requirements on our FOR CLIENTS webpage, then simply call or stop by.
Each month, we provide 2 free educational classes. Attend both, and receive an extra meat when shopping our Pantry the following month. All classes are held at our NERA office in downtown Ponca City.
