South County Community Services COVID-19 Response (updated 3/22/2020):
We are continuing to provide assistance with food, transportation, and financial assistance, but the building is no longer open to the public. Please feel free to call during our regular business hours Monday-Thursday (9am – 5pm). Calls will be forwarded to staff cell phones while we work from home so that we can be sure to be available to serve you.
Food Pantry: The food pantry will be closed for regular hours indefinitely. Instead, we are providing preboxed food from Loaves and Fishes. Please call Austin at 649-2901 to schedule a pickup. Boxes are being distributed 10am-12pm out of our office, but you must call to make an appointment first. We are beginning to start food deliveries as well. Please let us know when you call if you require delivery.
Emergency Financial Assistance: We will continue offering assistance with utility bills and rent, but we ask that you call 649-2901 and talk to Austin in order to complete the process over the phone. Some guidelines have been relaxed, particularly for people affected by COVID-19.
Transportation: We will continue to offer transportation to seniors and people with disabilities in our service area. However, we will be asking that riders confirm that they are symptom-free and that they only use the service for essential appointments. Please call 649-2901 and speak to Tamra if you need transportation assistance.
Wednesday Winners, WIC, Footworks, Legal Clinic, Veteran Services Navigation, Kinship Caregivers, and all other nonessential programs are cancelled until further notice.
Please reach out to us if you have concerns or need assistance that is outside of our normal range of services offered.
