Social Services Program
Every day, our Licensed Social Worker offers individualized support to individuals and families to help them identify issues and set priorities to break the cycle of crisis.
Our Licensed Social Worker helps families with budgeting, makes referrals on low-cost car repair, provides housing and job search assistance, and helps people identify ways to create self-sufficiency.
We provide an opportunity to sit down with a caring and knowledgeable licensed professional who will listen, ask questions, offer suggestions, provide information and referral, and help set priorities.
Support is provided for making changes or reaching a goal; often a difficult process. We empower individuals to bring about desired changes, and provide information that helps individuals along that path of change. Our Social Worker works closely with school staff, Hennepin County, and other nonprofit agencies; clients are referred to appropriate agencies or organizations as needed.
Social Service clients may be homeless at the time of service. Families new to the area have been helped with household goods, assistance with employment issues, and information on available services. Many clients stop in to talk with our Social Worker on a regular basis, knowing they are always welcome.
