This page attempts to provide a summary of available information about agencies and organizations that provide help on homelessness, legal matters, income and help with children. Since the County is responsible for Social services, they have a similar page Housing Help Northumberland. However, this page summarizes their lists and organizes the information differently. It also allows searching (see box at right). Not all sources of help are listed but this is a good start.


Low Income

Help with Children

Disability Help

Legal Help

Help for Landlords and Tenants



Community Care - Provides support programs to seniors and adults with disabilities, allowing them to remain independent within their own homes and communities. Programs range from meals on wheels, support for caregivers, wellness programs, hospice support, transportation and more.

Other County Social Assistance

The County is also heavily involved in providing the Golden Plough Long Term Care home - it's a significant part of the County budget. They are heavily involved with managing (and building) affordable Housing.

If the above doesn't help, you can try going to the County's main web page and searching or try using their version of the same thing as this page.
