Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Community Resource Center aims to directly connect community members needing help with a variety of programs and services that will better their futures.

The Community Resource Center partners with several other county-wide agencies to bring their specific services and programs to our site in order to provide the needed help right here in our community.

Even though the Community Resource Center is a small, rural nonprofit with one full-time and one part-time staff we can accomplish great things for our community members by partnering with other agencies and volunteers.

The Community Resource Center has steadily increased the number and quality of programs and services it offers over the past years. More community members needing help are hearing about our offerings and are coming to us for services. Of course, our ultimate goal would be to eliminate the need for our safety net services but in the mean time we will continue to implement new programs and support our existing programs to empower our community members to maintain a safe, healthy and productive life in the future.
