Help NOW Services
Learn more about some of the great services Help NOW offers to teammates below, and then choose your region to get started.
Teammates in need of immediate food supplies, can pick up a food kit. Food kits are enough food to feed a family of four for 2 to 3 days. Teammates can also get connected with resources for longer-term supplies of food.
Basic Needs Now
If you are a teammate struggling to make rent, utility or other basic financial commitments, we can connect you to crisis organizations for help.
If you are interested in purchasing a home in the future or finding access to lower-cost rental housing, we can help provide you an education course. This course provides assistance on building a budget, improving credit scores and help in applying for a mortgage. Those who complete the course can also get access to down-payment assistance programs.
We can also provide support for those in need of emergency housing.
We can help get you connected with programs to help pay your internet bill, low-cost or free home computers as well as computer and internet training.
Child or dependent care? Other challenges and just not sure where to turn? We may be able to help with these needs, too. Reach out today.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Who is eligible?
All teammates are eligible including contract, PRN and part-time. Atrium Health wants any teammate who needs support to be able to find that help. Please note that some partner agencies may have financial limits for who can access services.
- Can I participate in more than one program (Food NOW, Housing NOW, Basic Needs NOW, Internet NOW)?
Yes, we encourage you to participate in every program that you find helpful! You can choose to enroll in one program or all four. Each program has a different enrollment process, so follow the links in each description to start the process.
- Where do I enroll?
Follow the enrollment links for each region/market above.
- Do I have to make an appointment to get a food kit?
No appointments are needed. Our community health worker will help connect you with a pick-up and discuss referral to a local food pantry for a longer-term food supply.
- Why are you asking for Teammate ID?
To enroll for each program, you will be asked for your teammate ID. By collecting teammate IDs, we can show the success of the program. Any services teammates access with partner agencies will not be shared with Atrium Health, ONLY the IDs of those who reach out for help. The teammate IDs will only be used to count the number of participants.
This is a voluntary option. If you would prefer to not give your teammate ID, you can still access all resources available.
If you do not know your Atrium Health Teammate ID, you can locate it by visiting Core Connect-Me-Employment Information-Person Number.
