Our purpose is to enable individuals to function at their maximum capacity, to become self-sufficient, to improve their standard of living, to learn to cope adequately with their problems, and to provide preventive services that will avoid family breakup and enable individuals to remain in their own homes.

The three main program areas are: Income Maintenance Programs, Social Work Programs, and Prevention Services. Our programs are housed in two separate locations.
