During these times that we’ve all been experiencing Shelter In Place Orders/Corona Virus situations, our library staff wishes to help the community by providing some resources for those people or families that are in need such as local food pantries, places for financial assistance, shelter and housing, etc. The list is below. If you happen to know of any other organizations or places that are willing to help people please let us know by contacting us through firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!

Family Promise of Greater Beloit– 655 Bluff St. Beloit, WI· This is a homeless shelter for families (meaning there needs to be at least one dependent).
