Safety Net Services


Our Goals

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

Our Strategies

  • 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: 

  • Distribute the Food Provider flyer which provides descriptions and contact information of all food resources in south Wood County
  • Host the annual "United We Can" event at Witter Field in June to provide awareness around food insecurities in our community with food sculpture contests.
