Community Resources

Do you need help? 

Are you in need of assistance but don’t know where to turn?
Here is a list of outreach resources we have compiled. These agencies may be able to help you.

*Please note that Auburn United Methodist Church does not provide any cash, food, gas cards, etc. The food pantry located at AUMC is an Auburn Community Food Pantry that requires a referral from the 211. As a general rule, 211 is used as a referral for MANY services as sort of a “one stop shopping” guide. Before contacting any other agency, call 211 first. You can also reach them toll-free at 888-636-4211. Email and chat are also available athttp://www.211nemichigan.org
