Direct assistance with basic needs
Families and individuals can only focus on long term goals when their immediate food, safe shelter, and medical needs are being met. Through collaborations with other human service agencies, faith communities, and individual donors Center For Siouxland connects people with the resources they need.
Assessment and Referral -- Our community assistance specialists help families assess their immediate challenges and their eligibility for services from Center For Siouxland and all other community resources. We help to develop a plan to resolve their situation with follow-up services and referrals.
Food -- We operate a food pantry on-site four afternoons a week: 1:30 to 3:30 PM on Mondays, Tuesdays,Wednesdays, and Thursdays; plus Tuesday mornings from 10 AM to noon.
Utility Assistance -- Currently we have no funds available for utilities. When funds are available from government or private sources, we provide financial assistance to prevent disconnection of utility services.
Prescription Assistance -- As donations allow, we provide financial assistance so that people without resources can obtain prescribed medications to manage their health.
