DeWitt Assitance Exchange program is emergency financial assistance that is used for a wide range of things from to keep people from being evicted to helping pay for false teeth.
According to Jennifer Tolladay of DOVE, Inc., DAX can be used once every 365 days and will help with nearly any emergency financial need up to 200 dollars.
Tolladay believes that rumors about the DAX program being cut this year has led to a dramatic decrease in the usage of the program by members in the community.
Most of the funding for DAX comes from United Way, but it is also supported by churches and members of the community.
To find out more about DAX you can call Jennifer Tolladay at (217) 935-6619 to make an appointment or just stop by the DOVE building.
