If you need financial help, Milledgeville Cares has “Request for Assistance” forms available just below on this site (and they are reproduceable), and in paper form at the Baldwin County Jail, the Milledgeville City Water Department, and the Department of Family and Children Services. Complete the form and mail it back to Milledgeville Cares. Due to their unusual situation, you must wear gloves and a face mask to pick up a form at the Baldwin County Jail.
Everyone is encouraged to search below for MANY resources that are helpful for saving money on utility bills, dealing with pests, recovering from fires, and many other resources including financial assistance during COVID-19.
Two Facebook pages announce where to find food and other mass-distributed items. One is “Baldwin County Georgia People” and the other is “Milledgeville Georgia Public Message Board”. Check out these pages to find free items for your family.
