Our Essentials Program is designed to provide a hand up, not just a handout, to individuals and families struggling through difficult times.
This is a community-based program that offers support to the community during crisis, transition or to maintain stabilization. This program is designed to offer direct services to both families and individuals, in goal-oriented planning and achievement.
Services include but are not limited to:
Inspired Food Pantry offers both emergency food boxes, as well as a weekly food box distribution. Each food box is created with the idea of promoting health and well-being
The Community Closet has the capacity to assist families with clothing, baby formula, diapers, hygiene items, backpacks, school supplies and other essential household items
Emergency rental or utility assistance for extreme situations
Workforce development training and resume writing assistance
Case management and continuum of care, designed to assist and support both individuals and families
