Supports to Encourage Low-income Families

Supports to Encourage Low-Income Families (SELF) helps hard-working individuals find a path to live their dreams and better support their families in the future.

SELF’s Mission:  to enhance the quality of life for Butler County residents by impacting the causes of poverty and empowering individuals to achieve, sustain and advocate self-sufficiency. 

What does that mean?  We offer self-sufficiency programs that help people learn new skills, find a job, budget and save more money or even start a small business. We also help with utility assistance, home repairs and mobility modifications, and weatherization for low-income people in Butler County, Ohio.


Summer Crisis Program Utility Assistance Available to Butler County Residents
SELF’s Summer Crisis Program provides emergency utility assistance to vulnerable low-income individuals and families in Butler County who need help staying cool in the summer. This federally funded program can help eligible Ohioans who are at or below 175% of the federal poverty level.  Households meeting the income guidelines must also have a member age 60 or older OR a member of the household with documentation of a medical condition signed by a licensed physician or registered nurse practitioner.  Everyone filing for HEAP must bring in ALL documents listed here: 2015 SCP Application Docs.     Appointments are strongly encouraged and can be made now by calling 513-868-9300 or 888-432-7022.
