Need A Helping Hand?
No matter the situation, we are committed to getting you to safety first and foremost, and ensuring you have adequate shelter, food, clothing and any other necessities you may need to live life on YOUR terms. We hear you and we see you and we are ready to handle it with you. The first step is reaching out.
Reach out - we are here to help.
In keeping with our Mission and Vision, Community Resource Collaborative believes in working with young people wholistically. In working with young people who are directly and indirectly impacted by violence, we start with the basic necessities for life. Once basic needs are met, we work on sustainability and programming, such as connection to employment, education and services needed to sustain basic needs.
We provide funds for emergency relocation, to secure safe and adequate housing, food, healthcare, hygiene, and clothing for fluctuating seasons. We assist in gathering or replacing documents, seeking out available resources and counseling, and make sure every basic need is being met so that anyone who comes to us can start thriving instead of merely surviving.
Building A Life
Programming for growth and success is all based on each individual’s unique desires, skills, hopes and dreams. Building a Life Map based on each young person’s vision for their lives may include:
- Education: High school equivalency, higher education or the trades
- Employment readiness and training
- Transportation: connection to programs for getting a driver’s permit, license and vehicle
- A plan to move from subsidized housing to sustainable housing
Building A Future
- Mental Health counseling
- Substance Use Disorder: Connection to services providing support and therapy to assist with sobriety
Knowledge is Power
- Life skills: banking, budgeting, credit counseling, tenant rights.
