Beginning April 15th, 2020, and for the foreseeable future, all donations to We Care Westport will assist residents affected by the COVID-19 crisis. As our community faces financial uncertainty, food insecurity and a shortfall in ability to pay for housing costs, your contribution will have a measurable and immediate impact on our friends and neighbors.
The Human Services Department works with residents to identify local, state, and federal resources while also providing temporary financial assistance to help stabilize crises. DHS assists individuals in overcoming barriers to financial security through short-term counseling, education, and access to information that promotes independence, personal development, and an enhanced quality of life.
100% of contributions to We Care Westport will directly benefit income-eligible residents to meet essential needs such as childcare, rent and utility assistance.In addition to online monetary donations, we gladly accept grocery/pharmacy gift cards & checks are welcome. Please send to:
