School Supply Program

Household Goods

This program provides vouchers for families unable to buy the items on the required list of school supplies.

Consultation and Referral Services

These services are provided at the time when the immediate crisis has passed and families are finding their way back to a normal life. Services may be provided by referring the individual or family to another agency. The consulting component of our services include teaching good parenting and other life skills, creating and managing a budget, preparing for job interviews, providing nutritious meals on a budget, etc.
