  • Utilities assistance – we have on-site Energy assistance partnership with CAP HC and also assist families who have disconnection notices
  • Bridge to Better Income Childcare supports – available for parents not eligible for childcare assistance who are getting back into the workplace or who are attending short term training that will increase their income earning potential
  • Medical Prescriptions help – to help cover the costs of prescriptions on a one time emergency basis
