- Substance abuse services (outpatient)
- Food bank
- Legal assistance
- Medical transportation
- Psychosocial support
- Utility and short-term rent assistance
Not all of the above services may be available, and the nature of services may vary, by regional office.
Please contact the regional project director for a referral to a case manager who will verify an individual’s eligibility and discuss available services.
