After initial assessment, a comprehensive strategy is developed to meet the basic needs of the individual or family. This may include any/all of the following: Emergency Food Bags, placement in our Food Box (A Simple Gesture) ministry, Clothing, personal hygiene items, furniture/household goods, providing collaborative in-house services such as; shelter (GOHC), and Addictions counselling (ACADC). The HC also acts as a “portal” to a host of City/County services. Spiritual guidance and prayer is always a priority when needed.
