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, gas cards, etc. If you need assistance with any of these items please call 211. 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, they will know who has funding available and for what. You can also reach them toll-free at 888-636-4211. Email and chat are also available at http://www.211nemichigan.org

The food pantry located at AUMC is an Auburn Community Food Pantry that requires a referral from the Bay County Emergency Food Network.  Please call 989-545-1253 to set up a referral.
