Bottom Line:

In 2018 the Connecting Center served 553 people at the Help Desk with $106,465 funding help requested. We met $16,591 in relief requests, not including the 162 referrals to additional appropriate agencies. The hour-long interviews and subsequent research/networking helps eliminate system abusers and ensures funds are used wisely to help people in their time of need. We do not merely meet the relief need, but provide rehabilitative programs and mentors to help clients move toward independent and fulfilled livelihood. (Hand Up—Not a Hand Out!)
