Household Financial Assistance

Helping families in crisis.

Society of Samaritans

SOS has been serving residents of the Greater Magnolia area and West Montgomery County for 37 years, providing food, clothing, household goods and financial assistance with housing costs, utility bills, medical expenses and transportation needs.

We generally can consider providing financial assistance under these programs once every 12 months to residents of Montgomery county to help with emergency needs, with any exceptions made only after review on a case-by-case basis. All funding requirements must be met and files completed within 10 days of initial submission of the application. We have limited funds available and financial assistance can only be provided when all of the requirements are met and the file is complete.

  • Rent and Utility Assistance - We can assist with up to $200 toward past due utility (water/sewer, propane or electric) bills or up to $300 for rent due for the current month. Specific timing and payment requirements established by our funding program must be met. Please note: Review, approval and check processing will generally take 7-10 business days after all required documentation is submitted.
  • Health Services Assistance - We partner with local providers and depending on funding availability, may be able to assist clients to obtain the following services:
    • Vision - Eye exam and single lens prescription glasses
    • Dental - Dental exam and basic services
    • Medical Evaluation  - Assistance in diagnosing and obtaining necessary services. All assistance will be on a case by case basis.
    • Prescriptions - Assistance in filling a prescription from your medical provider at Magnolia Pharmacy.
    • Medical supplies and equipment - Assistance in providing some medical supplies: call for details.
  • Gasoline Assistance - Vouchers for fuel for scheduled medical appointments and job interviews only. Documentation and/or confirmation by telephone required.

Food Assistance

The SOS Food Pantry is located on Friendship Drive. We partner with Magnolia County Food Bank and with the generous citizens of Montgomery County to provide food to clients who live in the Magnolia ISD area of Montgomery County.

We do not discriminate based upon religion, sexual preference, age, ethnicity or race. Our mission is to serve all the community.

Our self-service Food Pantry allows families to select meat, produce, canned food, bread, pastries, desserts, and toiletries.
