ASSIST is an emergency support program that provides vouchers for financial assistance, information and referrals to a wide variety of community resources. It helps people living in poverty meet their basic material needs so that they have a stable foundation on which to build toward self-reliance and upward economic mobility.
Our ASSIST Case Manager helps clients navigate the complex system of housing, emergency shelter, rent/mortgage/utility assistance, SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), and other resources. The ASSIST office is located in our Fowler Literacy Center building at 200 Ferry Street in Easton.
ProJeCt is part of the Pennsylvania Continuum of Care, and utilizes Coordinated Entry / Pennsylvania 2-1-1 to assist those who are at-risk of homelessness. Pennsylvania 2-1-1 East is a free, confidential, non-emergency, comprehensive information and referral service that connects Northampton County residents with the health and human services they need.
You can reach 2-1-1 by dialing 2-1-1 or (855) 567-5341. 2-1-1 is not intended for emergency use. If you have an emergency, call 9-1-1.
