Financial Aid opportunities for staff:

Emergencies happen, and oftentimes they bring with them sudden, unexpected expenses. Many who find themselves in this situation don't have access to the kind of funds they need, and go in search of loans to cover the costs.

Here at Diligent Care Services we care a lot about our staff and if they find themselves in such a situation of life, we offer short-term bridging loans to enable them to meet those demands.
