Ecumenical Community Center, Ministries of Humanitarian Care & Service


HHM serves people urgently needing limited material assistance. We help with rent, utilities, auto gas, ID replacement, and financial and life coaching, along with personal and household care items like laundry & dish soap, shampoo, and deodorant. Auto gas is now a much greater transportaion need but we still offer a few local bus tickets. Our staff and volunteers help individuals to prioritize needs and navigate community agencies, funding, and resources. Our staff offers someone to talk to; someone to share concerns with; someone to encourage reaching goals and then to rejoice in those accomplishments.

People with low incomes who live in Linn County and need help may apply at no charge. Our services are not restricted based on race, religion, gender, familial status, national origin, or disability.
