Referral to Community Supports


Access to community support programs is critical for many local low-income individuals and families who struggle daily to overcome poverty. By referring those in need to key support programs in the metro, people have access to immediate financial assistance, legal access and support during a crisis. A network of additional community supports stands at the ready for those in need, giving opportunities to those struggling to make ends meet.
