Emergency Resources

Since its inception, the First Coast Relief Fund has distributed nearly $9 million through 251 grants to 128 unique organizations in Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns counties. While the Relief Fund’s grant cycles are currently closed, we understand there are many people still very much in need of everyday assistance. Below is a collection of community resources where you can find help.

211 is the easy to remember, three-digit telephone number that connects Northeast Florida callers to health, social and human services and more than 4,000 community programs. This community help resource is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and provides information to callers in Duval, St. Johns, Clay, Nassau, Baker, Putnam, Columbia, Suwannee and Hamilton counties. 211 staff will be equipped with shelter information and more, as information is available. To contact a 211 call center specialist, dial 2-1-1 or 904-632-0600 from any landline or cell phone.
