Our Mission Statement

"To Help People In Need"


In Need Now?

Are you in need? We may have services that can provide some relief. We can assist in several areas: we have non-perishable food, food vouchers to our local grocery store (based on funding availability), hygiene products, wood for heating, utility assistance that will pay a set amount to your electric or propane bill (based on funding availability), a medical assistance grant that provides assistance with doctor appointments, dentist appointments, help with prescriptions and over-the-counter medical needs, eye exams and glasses, chiropractic visits and gas vouchers to doctor appointments off the Hill (based on funding availability), and the Idyllwild Children's Fund, which provides assistance with child care costs at Idyllwild Town Hall for working parents, school/winter clothing or help with the cost of Town Hall sports, and seasonal programs.
