Need Help?

At Cross Timbers, one of our Core Values is generosity.

Cross Timbers loves to helps people who find themselves in a crisis or that need practical help to provide for their daily needs. Those who need assistance will need 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.

If you are requesting financial assistance, the following documents will be needed:

  • Request for Assistance Form
  • Household Budget (Printable)
  • Supporting Documentation, such as:
    • Proof of current address (current lease or mortgage statement)
