Community Resources

Emergency Relief 

SCS’s emergency relief program offers support to community members facing financial hardships and crises, bridging gaps left by traditional relief programs. It addresses urgent needs like income loss, housing instability, and food insecurity, providing timely and inclusive assistance.  

Guiding Principles and Services 

The Community Resources Program at SCS provides comprehensive resource navigation for clients, ensuring access to essential public benefits, healthcare, legal services, and more. Our team identifies and addresses interconnected challenges, empowering clients to lead stable and fulfilling lives. We offer resource navigation, referrals, and partnerships with culturally competent support. We strive to empower community members to advocate for their rights and access opportunities. 

A specialist will help you determine your eligibility and help you apply for public benefit programs including SNAP, Cash Assistance, Fair Fares, and more. The specialist will also help guide you through other resources such as financial relief, local food pantries, and more.
