Rockville HELP offers food and financial aid to residents of Rockville in need. Our line can be reached seven days a week. Please leave a message and a volunteer will call you back.
Rockville HELP assists persons seven days a week to extend a caring, listening ear, provide assistance and refer clients other resources when needed.
We offer help with rent and utilities, prescriptions, and other needs as we're able to accommodate them.
We deliver a three-day supply of food for a family or individuals. Someone (not necessarily the family member who made the call) has to be at home to accept the delivery - we cannot leave food in front of your door.
We can offer limited help with:
- rent or mortgage payment
- utility bills (water, electricity, gas)
- prescription medications
- emergency food (3-5 days of supplies for a family) delivered to your home
Call us at 301-564-0800 and leave a message to request help.
Frequently Asked Questions
We deliver three days of food to a family. The amount of food depends on the number of people in the household.
How often can a family call for food or request financial assistance?
We will deliver food to a family a maximum of three times in six months, and offer financial assistance once in a twelve-month period.
In what kind of situations do you give financial assistance?
Rockville HELP can provide limited financial assistance for prescriptions, rent, security deposit, or mortgage; as well as utilities, and special needs as we're able. The amount provided varies by need and availability of funds.
Do you deliver meals?
No. We deliver mostly canned and packaged food. In addition we bring bread, eggs, cheese, ground beef, and butter, as available.
Where do you get the food that you give out?
Most of the food comes from donations from congregations, individuals, and businesses. Manna Food Center has supported us for several years with their bulk purchasing program, currently through Stanley Foods. We buy bread, eggs, cheese, and the other refrigerated items on a regular basis. We also purchase specific shelf-stable items as needed to supplement donations. Our MEFP grant from the State of Maryland supports these purchases.
