What We Do
Social & Education Resource Centers
Financial stability, safe and affordable housing, good jobs with good wages, and education are the keys to ensuring long-term community stability and growth. Community Cooperative’s solutions for change transforms lives by permanently solving family and individual homelessness. Our approach is unique, providing a complete and sustainable solution driven by accountability.
At the heart of our work is ensuring the safety net, providing life-saving services to meet the most basic needs and supporting our neighbors when they are going through crises.
Staff at our Social & Education Resource Centers and United Way Houses partner with a myriad of agencies tasked with assisting individuals with positive, sustainable change through direct services, referral, and follow-up all under one roof. On-site and referral resources for job training, housing, mental health, substance abuse, child-care, education, financial well-being, health and wellness, and life coaching are available. We also provide assistance with Medicaid and SNAP applications as well as providing basic needs such as clothing, hygiene products and mail services for our homeless clients.
In addition to serving the basic needs of families in crisis, Community Cooperative strives to provide opportunities for adults to learn employment and financial skills, self-development and goal setting and to engage in a variety of other classes on health and wellness topics.
