Safety Net Services

Our Goals

  • Community members have access to shelter.
  • Community members have access to food.

Our Strategies

  • South Wood County Homelessness Coalition:  Distribution of the "State of the Homeless" Snapshot; MOU between member organizations which streamlines ability to communicate clients needs to each other and deliver services faster; conduct twice-annual Point in Time Homeless Count, where volunteers count and survey any homeless individuals during a specified date and time.
  • South Wood County Hunger Coalition:  creating and distributing the "Food Provider Poster" which provides descriptions and contact information of all food resources in south Wood County. Hosting the annual "United We Can" event at Witter Field in June to provide awareness around food insecurities in our community with  food sculpture contests and other games and activities throughout the evening.

How You Can Help

  • Volunteer for the Homeless Point in Time Count.
  • Put together a team and participate in the "United We Can" food sculpture contest.
