THE LIGHTHOUSE – Resource Program
This program matches the practical needs of the community with real resources available to them and may provide appropriate professional consultation.
When our clients come to the Food Bank they often need more than just the food, they may need direction in terms of acquiring practical assistance and support. Many are not aware of where to find the resources available to them.
Every day we talk to desperate people who are having to decide whether to pay bills, make their rent, or buy their prescriptions. Many are homeless, or are one paycheck away from being on the streets. They wrestle daily with lack and may be going without needed medication, medical, or dental help.
Our LIGHTHOUSE RESOURCE PROGRAM works to draw out the sometimes hidden needs of the participants, and then bring to their attention the resources, network connections, and guidance to meet their needs.
Maybe they have received a shut-off notice from Xcel Energy. They might not be aware of medical and dental help they can qualify for through low-income programs and facilities. They might qualify to receive minimal financial assistance or food benefits through government programs, but don't know where to go or what is required. Maybe they are unsuccessfully looking for work, or need strategies on becoming employable. Some are facing foreclosure, legal challenges, or need money management help. Others have housing or transportation issues. There are those who need government documents or identification cards. And some need to know about domestic violence help, women's shelters and day centers.
We have the much needed resource lists, along with trained and experienced consultants, and often times on-site professionals to help. But, we need your partnership! Would you consider helping us financially so we can continue to be here for the community?
