Welcome to Associated Charities. We’re so glad you’re here!

Associated Charities Ashland OhioOur mission is to provide short-term emergency financial assistance to the people in Ashland County in the way of utilities, shelter, medication, and pre-approved doctor and dental visits. We’re also pleased to serve as the clearing house for the Ashland County Food Bank, allowing us to assist with financial help as well as food.

We receive 56% of our funding from United Way funds. The other remaining dollars come from area churches, organizations, and generous individuals working together to make our community a stronger place.

In 2010, Associated Charities celebrated 100 years of service to the residents of Ashland County. With continued support from our caring community, we plan to keep making history–one life at a time.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and we could use your help. A donation of $40 would provide a family of 4 with the traditional Thanksgiving meal. Any amount would help purchase needed Thanksgiving food. Last year we helped over 300 families.
