Resource & Information Center

The Senior Case Assistance Program includes a Resource & Information Center. The priorities addressed by the program are to maintain stability of the household by providing families with entitlements, housing and social services while assisting individuals and families in identifying their problems and issues through dissemination of educational information, and to assist individuals and dependent children in obtaining services and resources through advocacy.

The services of the Resource & Information Center are also available to organizations working to end homelessness, as well as to the general public. The collection of brochures and other media promotes awareness and increases accessibility of educational information and resources.

The Information & Resource Center is opened every day from 9am - 5 pm.
