Rural Resources


Through education, resources and support, Rural Resources offers real hope to children, seniors and families, by working to create a stronger and more stable community for us all.  Each year, 14,000 people in Ferry, Lincoln, Pend Oreille, Whitman and Stevens Counties turn to Rural Resources for short-term assistance and long-term solutions to help them take control of their lives and their futures. Rural Resources is not a government agency. They are a private nonprofit corporation whose goal is to meet the basic social and economic needs of our rural community.
