Multi-Service Outreach Centers provide a safety net for those in need
and a means of moving beyond cycles of aid into self-reliance. They serve
people in need of social services who live in geographic areas generally
conforming with school districts.

The centers’ community social services
managers are available to meet with residents to address their situations.
The centers work closely with school districts, area churches, businesses,
and organizations, and the community at large. Regular business hours are 8:00 a.m.to noon and 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Monday
through Friday. Clients are seen by appointment only so we can provide a
confidential setting and give clients our full attention.
Items for the food pantries and funds for emergency assistance are made possible through the generosity of partnering businesses, schools, churches, community organizations, and individuals. Donations are always welcome!
