Residents in our region experience particular challenges, so we have invested in specialists who are focused on transportation, housing, mental health and basic food enrollment services.
One of the biggest barriers to employment, medical appointments or even grocery shopping can be transportation. Our trained specialists continually update information, referrals and assessments to help navigate:
- Public transportation and transit agencies
- Medical transportation
- Rural transportation
- Volunteer driving programs for seniors and individuals with disabilities
We provide a single point of contact for various programs that support families and individuals experiencing homelessness or on the verge of becoming unhoused.
- Emergency housing or shelter
- Wait lists for housing placement
- Permanent housing
- Home maintenance
- Eviction and foreclosure prevention
Behavioral health is just as important as physical health issues, but sometimes it’s not easy to ask for help. Our trained specialist provides confidential information about counseling, support groups and other forms of mental health assessment and treatment.
- Outpatient and inpatient programs
- Psychiatric assessment resources
- Recovery support
- Group and individual counseling
