is unique in that we serve clientele in a rural, not urban area.
Services can be as simple as looking up a telephone number or as
complicated as trying to help a family who lost everything. We
interpret and fill out papers, make referrals, answer questions,
pick-up medicine, and provide transportation when needed.
In addition to the above services and programs, we go the last mile to
help area residents anyway possible.
