School Supplies

This program ensures each child has the necessary supplies to start the school year off right. For some families in our community $75-$125 per child forces a choice between purchasing school supplies or monthly expenses such as: rent, medication, food or utility bills. Through this program, each child PreK - 12 receives a backpack and necessary supplies for their grade level, equipped and ready to learn.

Our Services

Crisis Assistance

Assistance is provided for housing, utilities, child care, medications, emergency medical procedures, dental, hearing and vision expenses.

Counseling & Domestic violence support

Victims of physical, emotional and sexual abuse receive critical counseling by licensed professionals. As they get their lives back on track, clients are also provided budgeting, goal-setting and financial planning assistance.

Senior Services

Needs Council volunteers provide “friendly support” to homebound seniors and rides to medical appointments since many have no family nearby. Community members adopt and provide gifts to these seniors and disabled adults at Christmas.

Child & Family Services

Children and their families are provided assistance with coats, school supplies, food, childcare, scholarships, parenting classes and Christmas assistance with the help of many community volunteers.
