Are you running low on food? FAMILY operates Emergency Food Pantries in Woodstock, New Paltz, and Ellenville. We know how hard it can be to balance unexpected bills or just stretch out your resources through the whole month. Whenever possible, we provide enough food for your family for three to four days.

Do you need a place to stay? Call any of our hotline numbers. FAMILY has emergency housing for individuals and families at our recently renovated Darmstadt Shelter and FAMILY Inn in Kingston. During the day, a referral from the Department of Social Services is required. After hours and on weekends, FAMILY uses federal emergency funds, when available, to provide a single night’s stay in an area motel.

Are you out of fuel for cooking or heating?  During the winter months, call any FAMILY hotline number to access emergency fuel to get you through the night or weekend. If you need help paying your fuel bills, a Family Case Manager can help you gain control over your budget, receive benefits you may be eligible for, and help you advocate for a payment plan.

Do you need clothes or household items? There is an endless supply of quality clothing, cooking items, and even furniture available through FAMILY’s Walk-In Centers. Stop by and have a look or check the “Donations” book for furniture items offered for pickup.

Donations of unopened food items are always welcome. We also use your cash donations to purchase perishables and other items to keep the Food Pantries stocked with a variety of foods. Holiday donations of food and gifts are a great way to share the holiday spirit (check out the Donate To FAMILY section of this website)!

Have items you’d like to donate? Great, but please call first. Each of our centers has limited space!
