Family Support Program

Family Support focuses on helping people overcome the challenges caused by the high cost of living in Summit County. The purpose of our programs are to assist you with setting goals, one-on-one budgeting and establishing connections to community resources.

We provide education and support to ensure families’ basic needs of housing, food, physical and mental health are met to help you thrive.
