Need assistance with rent or utilities?

CapCity goes through ROSM for assistance requests for rent, utilities, and food box requests.

Assistance with Rent and Utilities:

Please note that it takes 5-7 business days for a response from ROSM. Additional information may be requested from ROSM before your application can be processed.

If you have already applied for assistance through another church or agency, you MUST go through them until your application has been processed.

Requests for Food Boxes:

All Food Box requests must be in by 11am for the next day's receipt. Food boxes requested on Fridays will not be available until the following Monday.

*ROSM is closed on National Holidays.

How to apply for assistance.

We process applications for the Resource Office of Social Ministries (ROSM) and food boxes from the Franklin County Emergency Food Pantry on Tuesdays and Thursdays, in person, from 11am - 1pm. If you'd like to set up an appointment to fill out an application, please call our office at 502-695-1188 ext 117 or email us at [email protected].

Remember that the ROSM and Food Box Applications require the name, DOB, address, and SSN of anyone in the household, so have that information with you for your appointment.

We also partner with several other churches to provide many opportunities to those who find themselves struggling right now. We've listed below several organizations and churches that offer assistance with food and other options for how to receive help.
