From health education to crisis counseling SACSS has continued to expand its programming during the Covid-19 pandemic to meet the needs of our community.
Please note that most of our programming is now virtual, excluding our food pantry and senior support group, which are in person. Learn about what we’ve been up to during the pandemic below.
- Feeding Our Community in A Public Health Emergency
- SACSS has expanded and adjusted our food distribution program to fit the needs of our community during the pandemic. Changes we have made include: incorporating social distancing, offering delivery and pickup services, and expanding our hours of service.
- Care For Mental Health
- As part of our food distribution program, SACSS now offers mental health screenings and crisis counseling to anyone who uses our food pantry. Short term counseling is conducted by social workers who help clients address issues like building resilience, coping with anxiety, managing stress.
- Let’s Get Vaccinated!
- Throughout this past year, SACSS has helped hundreds of community members secure vaccine appointments and we’ve even hosted our own pop-up clinic to bring vaccines to our neighborhood.
