    Emergency Aid Network (EAN) - Financial aid for low-income households to buy basic necessities.
    Kids in Danbury Schools (KIDS) - The goal is to provide Kindergarten and elementary school students in Danbury's Title I schools (schools with a high proportion of families below the poverty line) with a strong educational foundation for continued success in their academic and post-education lives.

Tips For Prompt And Professional Assistance
1. Make an appointment - Always attempt to make an appointment. Oftentimes this will save you hours waiting in lines. When on the phone make sure you ask for the documentation needed in order to receive assistance.

2. Do not be late for your appointment - This tip should speak for itself.

3. Dress appropriately - If you want to be treated with respect, dress as appropriately as possible. We are not saying wear a suit. Just make sure you and your clothes are clean and non offensive. We have found that clients who dress in this manner have a better chance of receiving aid.

4. Bring all pre determined documentation - Bring all of the documents you were advised to bring from your appointment phone call. Without them, you will not receive aid.
