SUPPORT SERVICES

You Share, We Listen…

Together, We Find Solutions

 When you make an appointment at Community Action Center, we want to listen closely and understand the “systems” you have in your world. The entire family is the focus of work, interdependence of family members, and the parallel process of family, organization, and community. During our time together, your family or household is our partner in the process of…

  • Joining- together, creating trust and partnership
  • Assessing what is happening: identification of families strengths, vision, and barriers
  • Planning together, setting family-driven short- and long-term goals
  • Building ongoing emotional support for you and yours, to strengthen hope
  • Linking you with what you need, by coordinating information and service with wider community resources

The process ultimately reinforces family values and encourages the family to form support networks within the community, which often helps achieve stability and growing self-sufficiency.
