Assistance Information and Process

  • Operation Hope ministries and resources are available for individuals and families living within the Landrum/Spartanburg School District One area.
  • Financial Assistance is provided for individuals and families to help meet their current basic needs. Our Financial Assistance Services include, but are not limited to the following: Electricity, gas, propane, fire wood, heaters, fans, and water. NOTE: We do not assist with housing payments (rent or mortgage) at this time. No funds are given to clients. Operation Hope will make a commitment to the vendor and then pay the vendor directly.
  • No funds are given to clients for clothing or household items. A voucher will be issued to the person(s) for clothes/items within the Operation Hope ReSale Store.
  • No funds are given to clients for food and supplies. Clients will select items they need from a “Pick List.” Based on availability, a volunteer will compile the items as close to the list as we can.
  • No funds are given to clients for medicine or prescriptions. The director will coordinate the payment of approved medical items with a local pharmacy.

The Assistance Process:

  • Make an appointment with the Director of Operation Hope and bring with you the following items:
  • Verification of residence in the Landrum/Spartanburg District One area. Example: a current bill reflecting your address, bank statement, tax or insurance bill.
  • A current and valid driver’s license or photo ID
  • Proof of household income for all persons living in the residence. Example: Current pay check stub; copy of alimony or child support check; government support
  • The actual bill(s) for which assistance is being requested
  • For your first time, you will need to complete a fairly lengthy intake form. Other times, a shorter form may be used.
  • At the end of the interview, the director, or other intake person, will prayerfully make what they believe is the best decision for you based on the resources available at that time.
