The Welcome Center is both a physical and philosophical point of entry. Here, a resource specialist greets clients, listens to their needs, gathers information, and through casual conversation, determines obstacles hindering a person’s path to self-sufficiency. It is also where we deliver emergency assistance such as food, clothing, hygiene products, diapers, formula, utility and rent assistance.
If you are in a crisis situation, we can help! We provide rent and utility assistance, food, clothing, transportation (bus passes), hygiene, diapers, baby supplies, as well as, access to other internal and external programs.
The Welcome Center will focus on developing a disaster program by providing case management services to those households affected by natural and man-made disasters. This can include emergency assistance, education, and both internal and external referrals when necessary.
Senior Care Services
The program provides a comprehensive, client-centered continuum, designed to meet a senior’s varying needs. This allows seniors to live a healthy, self-sustaining life in their own home and community.
