Help your local Sheridan community by donating to the Sheridan Food Bank! Your contribution helps stimulate the local economy while helping your neighbors.
In 2005, Dan Lick, Director of Payee Assistance, determined there were people in the community that may not have the same needs as those he had been working with, but were still in need. He took the need to the board of directors and PEOPLE ASSISTANCE was conceived. PEOPLE ASSISTANCE guides people in need to resources that may be able to help with the need, including but not limited to, rent assistance, rent payment arrangements, gasoline, bus tickets, food, clothing, auto repair, help with utility bills, child care, medical. dental care, eye exams and lenses, and counseling. PEOPLE ASSISTANCE is staffed with counselors dealing with personal, marriage, financial, emotional and spiritual issues. We also have access to legal counsel, if necessary. PEOPLE ASSISTANCE staff work on a volunteer basis ; some retired citizens and some with full time jobs in the community
