OUR PROGRAMS

For those in need, the Lilburn Co-op community is here for you. We have three main programs under our organization:

Kay's Pantry brings food to families on a bi-weekly basis

Clothing Assistance for those who need it most, at no cost

Financial Assistance for those seeking help with rent, utilities, mortgage or car payments

Other services include: referral information for other sources of assistance, employment resources, school supplies, and counseling referral.

THE STATS

According to the AJC in 2017, over 70% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. This means a loss of employment puts families in immediate financial hardship. Unemployment may be low, but underemployment is a big problem as families aren't making enough money to pay essential bills like housing, utilities, and school fees.

In 2017, Lilburn Co-op provided 80+ families with emergency financial assistance each month, while Kay's Pantry served over 863 people. In 2017, we were blessed to serve 10,357 of our neighbors, which represents 3,956 families. We have also sponsored approximately 650 families during our Thanksgiving and Christmas outreaches.

KAY'S PANTRY

We serve clients in our community by providing food to families in need on a bi-weekly basis for those who are unable to receive full food stamps through the Department of Family and Children Services.

CLOTHING ASSISTANCE

We provide clothing to families in need through our thrift store, Lily's Cloak, once every six months.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

We provide emergency financial assistance (up to $250) one time per year, depending on the circumstances and if you meet the income guidelines.  This is available to families in the midst of unforeseen financial hardships, including rent, mortgage, utilities, and car payments.
