Our neighborhood is only as vibrant as the people who live here. As a neighbor in this West Side community, Steepletown strives to assure everyone is doing well. To that end, we are constantly trying to bring as many resources to the neighborhood as possible, providing an array of support services and educational programs.
Neighborhood Emergency Assistance
Offering assistance for eviction or utility shut-off, West side residents (49504 Zip Code) may apply for limited funds that are available. Through an intake and assessment process, Steepletown works with households to identify internal and local resources needed to meet their financial emergency. To address the long-term needs of the household, several support services and educational programs are offered through Steepletown. These develop the tools and resources needed to meet ongoing basic needs and thereby avoid future emergency crises.
