Concrete Support for Service Providers

Providers can suggest social service resources to help some families obtain more concrete supports. Many social service programs can provide financial assistance (such as help accessing food, medical assistance, housing, or child care), mental health services, substance use treatment, or protection from intimate partner or family violence. Walking your clients through making these connections with programs can be difficult, confusing, and can also often be a frustrating process for them. By visiting this section, you will be able to find community resources that can help meet some of their needs. For more information, please have your families call 211.
