"FLEX with JUMP"

Welcome to the Joint Urban Ministry Projects Flex Assistance Support (FAS) Online Application and the FLEX mail in application which you can download.


FAS delivers by mail aid to the home of eligible clients pending availability of resources and/or program space availability. FAS is designed to provide a safe and efficient means to purchase groceries or transportation gas assistance.


NOTE, JUMP is adapting its operations to remain open ONLY online to ensure service continuity, although limited.  So, please remember, we have limitations and can only do what we can within those limitations.
