Do you need a little hope?

Sometimes we find ourselves in a position where we can serve and give generously and other times, we need a little extra help to get us back on our feet. If you are in a crisis or need practical help to provide for daily needs, follow the instructions below to request assistance.

Be sure to complete a Request for Assistance Form before scheduling meeting.
Each applicant is carefully reviewed, and all information is held in strict confidence. Cross Timbers reserves the right to either provide everything the applicant requests, only a portion, or they may refuse the request if they believe it will reinforce negative or irresponsible behavior.

      • Request for Assistance Form

      • Supporting Documentation, such as:
