Community Lifeline Center is an organization that can help your family during a crisis caused by a job loss, unexpected medical bills or something else. CLC helps with basic needs to prevent long-term crises.

If you live in our service area and have documents showing your crisis, you may be eligible to receive Lifeline Market food, financial assistance for rent or financial aid for utilities. Financial assistance depends on the donations we receive.

The cities in our service area are Altoga, Anna, Blue Ridge, Celina, Copeville, Farmersville, Josephine, Lavon, Lowry Crossing, McKinney, Melissa, Nevada, New Hope, Princeton, Prosper, Westminster and Weston.


A documented crisis is an unexpected event that has documentation. This event has created an immediate need and has not been caused by anyone. CLC financial assistance is not an income supplement or a pension or automatic benefit program. Please note that changes in temporary or seasonal employment are not considered unexpected.
CLC offers help with life needs that may include:

• Accommodation
• Services
• Medical expenses
• Food
• Hygiene and household items
