Mesquite Social Services

Each household is eligible to receive assistance with utility - MSS accepts most electric companies (except TXU), City of Mesquite Water, or Atmos) or rent one time per year as our funding allows.  Walk-ins for financial assistance are taken on Wednesdays starting at 10:00 am; until the allotted number of clients has been reached. Clients must have all required documentation ready when they arrive. 


  • Clients must live in our service area  
  • Provide valid photo IDs for every adult in the household
  • Provide social security cards (or birth certificates) for everyone in the household
  • Proof of residence (lease or utility bill with address)
  • Proof of ALL household income 
  • Copy of bill you need assistance with or lease

 *MSS is unable to assist Section 8 or public housing clients

Please note, as of 08/02/17, MSS cannot fund TXU or mortgage payments.
