Assistance Programs

Assistance Programs   *   Monday – Friday   *   10 AM – 5 PM

Servant’s Heart is a unique resource serving residents of Mint Hill and families of students who attend Mint Hill Schools. With a warmth and friendliness not often found in larger agencies, we treat our clients with dignity and respect and devote a substantial amount of time to each person seeking assistance. When we feel it would be beneficial to clients, we establish dedicated community partnerships through referrals to ensure our clients get the assistance they need. 


What people are saying about Servant’s Heart Assistance Programs . . .

JL says:  I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Miss Kim.  Since the fall of 2016, Servant’s Heart has helped my wife and I with our grandchildren.  I can’t express how grateful we are.  From Thanksgiving dinner to dry goods like toiletries and soap to Christmas gifts for the kids, she and her staff have been there for us.  Never JUDGMENTAL–just helpful and caring.  We often hear of the “Sacred Heart of Jesus”…these Christians live it.  Thanks again!  ~The L. Family

DB says:  How can I say thank you when thank you is not enough?  Your kindness and loyal support is amazing, and I am so grateful for you and your organization.  What truly resonated with me was when Kim prayed with me during my last visit.  This has been a very emotional and trying time for me, and your prayer really touched me and was exactly what I needed.  So again, thank you for the kindness that you’ve shown, for praying for me, and for offering hope.

ONCE AN APPOINTMENT TIME IS SET, CLIENTS SEEKING ASSISTANCE SHOULD BE PREPARED TO BRING THE FOLLOWING ITEMS WITH THEM TO THE APPOINTMENT:

  • Proof of household income or unemployment

  • Photo ID (often a driver’s license)

  • Social Security Cards for everyone who resides in the home.

  • Food Stamp EBT card, if applicable

  • Evidence of address (current electric bill)

  • Evidence of crisis with your name on it (e.g. loss of job)

The information above will be used to determine the client’s financial state and need, along with the crisis that brought them to us. With information entered into our data base, Servant’s Heart often addresses more than the precipitating event and provides concrete solutions to real problems.  Our heartfelt goal is to be able to provide every client with assistance, offer genuine encouragement, keep families intact, and offer hope for a better tomorrow.

SEASONAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
