We’re Here to Help

The Patrician Society offers caring, kindness, and compassion to all who come through its doors. 

Emergency Food Cupboard

Eligible families may be assisted with a grocery package containing enough non-perishable food for every member of the household to have three meals each day for 5 days. 

Grocery packages are comprised of non-perishable and perishable foods including meat, dairy, and baked products. All the food is donated all through the year from various sources, including businesses, churches, schools, families, scout groups, and other institutions.

Approximately 40 regular volunteers perform all duties including clerical and computer tasks as well as processing, separating, staging, and shelving food.

The food cupboard is open Tuesday and Thursday afternoons year-round and at other times by prior arrangement.

The Patrician Society is regularly involved with the Norristown Hospitality Center, Central Behavioral Health, Creative Health, Resources for Human Development, Catholic Social Services, Montgomery County Office of Children and Youth, Montgomery County Senior Services, and others in the sharing of referrals and provision of various services to ensure that all requests are fulfilled.

H.U.M.A.N. Program

The H.U.M.A.N. Program (Housing Utilities Miscellaneous Aid for Neighbors) provides third-party payments for partial rental, heating oil or electric bills, and miscellaneous expenses. All recipients of HUMAN funds must be qualified in terms of financial need as determined through an application process.  

How to receive assistance

  • The Patrician Society requires all prospective recipients to register annually. Each client family is assessed for eligibility for services on a case-by-case basis keeping in mind family income and assets, number of persons in the household, current financial standing, and extraordinary or unusual family circumstances.
  • After review, the Patrician Society will allocate available aid resources as equitably and effectively as possible in order to best serve the most clients.
