Social Services

Nearly 13 percent of Fremont residents live below the federal poverty line.

Chances are, though you may not be aware of it, you know someone who is struggling to make ends meet. Our goal in providing social services is to ease burdens, offer some peace of mind, and help individuals and families overcome challenging circumstances.  

How We Help Overcome Poverty

Rent and Utility Assistance
No one should have to choose between heating their home during the frigid winter months and putting food on the table, and yet, those living in poverty are often forced to make such a choice. That's why we are grateful to work with local renters and utility companies to help people pay their bills when they are struggling to make ends meet. For example, our partnership with Black Hills Energy offers utility assistance via HeatShare funds to those in need. Learn more about HeatShare.

Personal Care Pantry  |  Tuesday & Thursday, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
We offer everything from household items like laundry detergent and dish soap to personal hygiene products like soap, shampoo, deodorant and body wash to anyone in need who walks through our doors -- including those experiencing homelessness or individuals or families who are struggling to make ends meet.

Back-to-School Assistance
Supplying kids with new backpacks, notebooks, pens and pencils can put an extra strain on a family's already-tight budget. That's why each August we partner with other agencies in the community to ensure that every kid in Fremont is prepared for the start of school with a new backpack filled with school supplies.  

Pathway of Hope
The goal of Pathway of Hope is to guide families with children 18 years and younger through crisis to a place of stability in order to ultimately break the intergenerational cycle of poverty. We offer strengths-based casework, providing services such as:

  • financial counseling and planning
  • goal setting with manageable action steps
  • job training, referrals and employment assistance
  • assistance with securing housing and child care
  • emotional and spiritual support 

Pathway of Hope works with people where they are, offering practical guidance to help families overcome obstacles and achieve their big-picture goals, one step at a time.

Food Programs
We offer a free summer lunch program for children ages 1-18. Learn more.
