It’s hard to think about anything else when there is no food in the kitchen, the rent is overdue and you’ve received a cutoff notice from the utility company.
We are here to help.
Meeting life’s basic needs is the first step to stability.
Many families qualify for public benefits, but find them difficult to access.
Applying for supports like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps; Medicaid and other supports can be daunting.

The Welcome Center offers:
