Family Support Services

Our Family and School Support Services program provides parental assistance as well as medical, legal and social service help and referrals that connect families and individuals to community-based resources to address critical needs and to provide vital solutions in times of crisis. In partnership with key community organizations, Building One Community offers referrals for medical and mental health services, housing and homelessness, legal representation, domestic violence and substance abuse issues. We also offer onsite assistance to constituents facing critical problems such as unpaid wages, immigration concerns, unfair housing practices, workers’ rights issues and other challenges crucial to economic and social stability.
