Summit County can be a difficult place to raise a family. Many people don’t have their extended families living here or often don’t have anywhere else to turn when facing an emergency. FIRC’s Family Support program can help when you’re facing a crisis or unable to afford the basic needs. Our goal is to help you realize your strengths and help you gain self-sufficiency.
Programs working toward self-sufficiency:
- one-on-one budgeting education
- connection to resources for employment, housing, domestic violence, medical and more depending on your situation
- family goal-setting
- assistance with higher education or obtaining GEDs
- money saving tips to lower energy bills
- loan modifications on mortgages
- partial payment assistance with urgent dental, vision or upcoming medical procedures
Health insurance is important and the Health Navigators at the Family & Intercultural Resource Center (FIRC) are here to help you sign up for the Marketplace, Medicaid or CHP+ plans. The insurance system is hard to understand, but we can walk you through the process and make it much easier.
