What typ of non-governmental programs are there for low income families?

The government currently uses FAMILY income as a judge but are there any programs outside of government that don't use household or family income as a metric to assist low income families?

Update:

Pat what may those programs be?

    Most benefits are means tested (based on household income) to make sure they're not being wasted on people who don't really need them. But two that aren't would be Unemployment Insurance and SSDI. So if an individual lives in a household too wealthy to qualify for welfare, food stamps, etc. this person could in theory collect UI (if they've ever worked and paid into that) or SSDI if they're disabled. Beyond that this family would have to seek private charity in the form of religious alms or food banks.

    Well how would you know they're low income if you don't ask?

    There are plenty of resources available to everyone, regardless of income.

    None. Everything non-government is for profit.
