Financial and Employment Support

If you or someone you know is having a hard time paying for rent, utilities or food, Northumberland County Community and Social Services can offer help. There are also programs that can help you search for a job or access education.

Ontario Works

If you have little or no income, you might consider applying for Ontario Works, which provides ongoing financial support. This program also includes employment support to help you prepare for and find a job.

Learning, Earning and Parenting (LEAP) Program

If you are a young parent, you can apply for the LEAP program. This program helps you get your high school diploma and learn more about job skills and parenting.

Community services and support

One of our community outreach workers may be able to help if:

  • You have low to moderate income and are not eligible for Ontario Works
  • You are a senior with a fixed income
