Due to the high demand for rent and mortgage assistance, Shelby County Community Services Agency (CSA) has temporarily suspended acceptance of new applications.  We ask that all residents in need of rent or mortgage assistance call our message line at 901-222-4212 to be placed on our waiting list.  As additional funds become available, you will be contacted. We apologize for this potential inconvenience. Thank you for your patience. Utility assistance applications are still being accepted at this time.

Our Mission

Our mission is to create a thriving community by breaking the cycle of poverty through education, resources, and programs that help the disadvantaged citizens of Shelby County become independent and self-sustaining.



  • We are thankful for Shelby County CSA and all they do to help our community. As an elderly couple we depend on our social security but sometimes things happen and it isn’t enough to support us. Thankfully Shelby County CSA has programs that help people in times of need.
