Bottom Line:

In 2017 the Connecting Center interviewed 355 people at the Help Desk with $67,927 in requests for relief assistance. Along with our strategic partnership with the Salvation Army, we met $22,266 in relief requests, not including the 73 references 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!)
