Direct Assistance

Sometimes unexpected emergencies happen in life—whether it’s an unforeseen medical cost or the loss of a job. The Emergency Direct Assistance Program Provides a hand up to Chattanooga families when they need it most. We work in partnership with other agencies to provide Emergency Direct Assistance services to clients including:

  • Case management with budgeting coaching from an NNH case manager.
  • Help with emergency needs for utilities, food and prescription medications.
  • Referrals to NNH programs as appropriate (work readiness such as resume development and job search help and an on-site Adult Education program).
  • Follow-up phone calls to check on clients’ progress.
  • Distribution of Christmas toys (children ages birth to 18) and food boxes.

We serve clients living in seven ZIP codes north of the river including: 37405, 37415, 37343, 37351, 37379, 37373, and 37304. We have two offices (one on the Northshore of Chattanooga at 211 Minor Street and one in Soddy Daisy at 10161 Dayton Pike.
