Emergency Assistance (formerly located on Broad St. in Chamblee & part of Suthers Center for Christian Outreach) is now operating at our new location, St. Martin in the Fields Episcopal Church, 3110 Ashford-Dunwoody Rd. in Brookhaven.
The long-standing Emergency Assistance Fund provides financial help to local families in need. Our services primarily focus on providing assistance with transportation including Marta cards and utility bill payments up to $50, including cell phone bills. Help is provided to families and individuals living in the two zip codes nearest the church, 30319 and 30341. People outside this area are given references to agencies near them.
Suthers, through its Hall Assistance Transition Service (HATS), refers homeless individuals and families to various shelters and may provide limited initial support such as food or covering the cost of transportation to a shelter. HATS is available through the Emergency Assistance service on Saturday mornings.
