The St. Frances Cabrini Conference will respond to messages left on our message line on Mondays.

The basic areas that we are able to help with are: rent, utilities, clothing, household goods and furniture. 

 The following criteria must be met in order for us to help:

  1. You must live in Lakewood or Tillicum in the 98499, 98498 or 98439 zip codes, however there are some addresses within the 98498 and 98499 that belong either to St. John Bosco or Visitation Parish Conferences.
  2. If you are requesting assistance with rent, you must also have a pay or vacate notice…we do not help with move-in costs.
  3. You must have a shut off notice if you need assistance with your utilities.
  4. There is a waiting period of 12 months between assistances of any kind.


Our phone lines are open from 9am – 12noon on Mondays and we help all that we can until our funds run out for that week. Our donations come from the parishioners of St. Frances Cabrini Parish, but we willingly accept donations from anyone who would like to help with this special ministry to the poor.

For assistance, please call:   253.655.7837 (English)

If you call on Monday, we will return your call even if we are unable to help.  Messages left any other day of the week will not be returned.
