Financial Assistance for Victims

Financial Assistance for Victims


Housing: The Co-Chairs of Partners in Crisis are able to make funds available for hotel/motel stays up to three days.

Meals: Money for meals for three days will be provided for the spouse and his/her children. Transportation: Gift cards may be applied to expenses for gasoline, taxi, bus, etc.

MISCELLANEOUS  Short-term needs such as medicine, childcare, and so on, may be provided directly to the pharmacy/childcare center, and so on, as needed through PIC Co-Chair or your district superintendent (who will be reimbursed by PIC).

Longer-Term Needs: A one-time sum will be made available for housing, utilities, telephone, deposits, and so on. Money will be paid directly to the provider of such services by the treasurer of Partners in Crisis.  Their addresses and phone numbers must be provided.

Necessary funds for childcare in addition to this amount will be made available to the childcare center upon request.

Available financial assistance will be up to $1650.00 at the discretion of the Executive Committee as the funds are available.


A request for funds shall be made through the office of the district superintendent or to the listed Co-Chair.  The PIC treasurer will then reimburse the district office as funds are available. The whole dollar amount will be disbursed as needed through the district superintendent or the listed Co-Chair.


The recipient of financial help should not feel embarrassed or hesitant to request funds for the emergency. Only if and when the spouse is able to do so, the recipient may want to reimburse the funds in the amount of 50 percent of money received. This returns to the treasury to assist other spouses. Financial assistance will be up to $1650 at the discretion of the Executive Committee (while keeping confidentiality) as funds are available.
