Financial Support


Do you need one-time financial help?

If you are facing a critical situation, needing financial assistance with rent, rental deposit, utility bills, or other essential needs, you may qualify for financial assistance at Sunnyvale Community Services. We are the safety-net agency for residents of Sunnyvale. Read below for more information about how to request assistance.

Visiting Sunnyvale Community Services

Clients requesting emergency one-time financial assistance must come to our office and meet with a caseworker who will take all of the necessary information, including a local address, financial information, and other issues facing that client. Caseworkers help clients who have financial challenges create a budget that shows a path toward resolving any financial emergencies. If clients are in need of other assistance our caseworkers can refer them to the appropriate agency or resource to help.
