Genesee County Community Action Resource Department goal is to be "an open door and a helping hand." The Neighborhood Service Center staff has provided services to over 43,200 families to maintain their homes, pay rent and taxes, respond to closing notices, feed and clothe their children, and provide gifts during the Christmas period as well as other emergency needs.
In 2004, they found that funds were available to help more than 1,884 families.
Many people who contact the center struggle to find community resources that can assist them in their efforts to meet basic human needs.
That is why they exist and to support their efforts to provide themselves with the basic human needs of the family.
