Community Services Home
Community Services assist low-income families and individuals to move from public assistance to self-sufficiency.
The application for services begins with an intake and counseling session with a case manager. This is a process through which the needs and eligibility of the individual or family applying for services is determined. Working together, a plan of action is developed to resolve the current emergency situation and move toward self-sufficiency.
The case manager may recommend one or more of the following services based on program guidelines and income: utility and energy assistance, housing assistance, appliance repair and replacement, and transportation services.
Please click on the links to the left to learn more about the programs offered. To find a case manager in your area who can guide you through the application process, please click on the link to Community Action Providers.
Households can apply online for assistance. Click on the link below. After completion of the application, you will be contacted to schedule an appointment with a Case Manager in your area.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. Each October, people across America pause to acknowledge survivors and raise their voice in support of victims. Governor Ducey, through the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family, is launching the #LightingArizonaPurple campaign to help stamp out domestic violence in Arizona and you can help.
Wearing the color purple is the best way to show others how important ending domestic violence is to you. Director Simplot hopes you will join him in raising awareness for this critical issue effecting so many of our families across the state by wearing purple throughout the month but especially on Thursday, October 21st (National Domestic Violence Awareness Day).
Wearing purple shows your support for victims. If you know someone experiencing domestic violence, please help connect them to critical resources that could save their life.
Thank you for supporting National Domestic Violence Awareness month and I look forward to seeing purple everywhere throughout October!
