WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU

Community Resources

We believe that anything is possible when we serve and support one another. For this reason, we have put together a list of resources to assist in obtaining things like food, transportation, clothing, legal services and more. 

Disclaimer: This section contains a list of resources available to the public for assistance with obtaining food,  shelter and other support.  Please note that The Health Center @ McKenny is providing this list for informational purposes only.  The inclusion of any agency on this list does not mean that The Health Center @ McKenny promotes or endorses that agency.  The Health Center @ McKenny has not received any compensation or remuneration from any of these agencies in exchange for inclusion on this list.  Members should choose the best resource depending on a member’s needs and service area.
