South County Community Services COVID-19 Response (updated 11/16/2020):

We are continuing to provide assistance with food, transportation, and financial assistance. Starting 11/16/2020, we will have staff in the building 10am-12pm, Monday-Thursday for drop in services and food/gas voucher distribution. All other business will be conducted remotely or by appointment only. Please call during our business hours (9am-5pm, Monday-Thursday) for assistance.

Food Pantry: The food pantry will be closed for regular hours indefinitely. Instead, we are providing preboxed food from Loaves and Fishes and supplemental bags of food and household supplies. Please call Austin at 649-2901, extension 5 to schedule a pickup. Boxes are being distributed out of our office, but you must call to make an appointment first. We are currently suggesting that people call Loaves and Fishes and schedule a pickup at one of their larger locations, as they are able to provide a much larger amount of refrigerated/frozen food than we can, but we do have food available for anyone who is not able to get to Kalamazoo.

Emergency Financial Assistance: We will continue offering assistance with utility bills and rent, but we ask that you call 649-2901, extension 5 and talk to Austin in order to complete the process over the phone. Some guidelines have been relaxed, particularly for people financially 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. Please call 649-2901, extension 7 and speak with Tamra if you need transportation assistance.

Veteran Services Navigation: All services will be conducted remotely. Please call 649-2901 in order to speak with a VA Services Navigator.

Wednesday Winners, WIC, Footworks, Legal Clinic, 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.
