FISH is a volunteer organization that provides emergency food, prescriptions, utility assistance and some transportation arrangements for residents of Tiffin and Seneca County.

 

FISH is not an acronym. It comes from the Greek work “Ickthus." The letters stand for "Jesus Christ, Son of God Savior.” The fish symbol was used by early Christians as a means of identification to escape persecution and later as a sign of distress, a plea for help from one's neighbor. The organization was co-founded in 1961 at St. Andrews Anglican Church in Oxford, England, and in America in 1964 at the Episcopal Church in West Springfield, Massachusetts.

 

The Tiffin unit was formed in 1973 by an ecumenical group to help fill unmet needs in the community. All FISH services are performed with the help of volunteers. Calls regarding financial help must be approved by two officers before funds may be released. A request for financial aid is limited to $30.00.

 

FISH works with St. Vincent de Paul and the Salvation Army to help people with prescriptions, utilities, doctors, motel rent and other personal needs. The organization also assists with transportation, either through Seneca County Agency Transportation (SCAT) or by assisting people who may have cars but might need gasoline to get to a doctor or hospital.

 

FISH serves anyone who calls for help. There are no restrictions as to age, race, sex, religion, nationality, or disability. FISH does not require verification of proof of citizenship to receive assistance.
