Inside the auditorium at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Shiloh Springs Rd in Dayton, workers from a number of local agencies sit at tables stacked with informational brochures and forms to be filled out. Joining the workers at most of the tables are local residents seeking their help.

The church is temporarily home to a so-called Family Assitance Center - a partnership of local service agencies and Montgomery County.
