Bottom Line:

In 2020, even with COVID the Connecting Center served 428 people at the Help Desk with $87,000 funding help requested. We met $16,000+ in relief requests, not including the 248 referrals to additional appropriate agencies, along with 1,743 volunteer hours at the Connecting Center. 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!)
