Season of Sharing supports individuals and families from Manatee County who are on the verge of homelessness to stay in their homes. Funds may be used for rent or mortgage, utility bills, child care, transportation, work tools or other crucial expenses.
Season of Sharing funds are considered assistance of last resort, and clients should only apply when there are no funds available from any other organizations. Recipients must either be employed or be able to show a source of income.
A limited number of applications are taken by phone on Friday mornings at 8AM SHARP. Application slots usually fill up within 10 minutes. Applications can be submitted at (941)757-1166. When you call please make sure you listen to the whole message and include all of the relevant information (name, correct spelling and return number).
