Community Outreach Services
This program helps individuals and families move beyond emergencies to more stable and stronger home lives. COS encompasses the following three components.
• Health and Wellness Services engages the community in interactive health and wellness workshops, support groups, events and resource fairs that cover daily needs including healthy living, COVID 19 and parenting.
• Community Outreach Centers (formerly walk in center). Our Outreach Specialists assess the individuals needs and respond with information, resources, and limited financial assistance.
• Food Resource Services operates a network of 20 food pantries (in partnership with parishes in the Diocese of Brooklyn). Our network helps distribute more than 3 million meals to 300,000 people. Meals include shelf stable items, dairy, meats and fresh produce.
