Help Desk: This is the first stop when entering Project S.O.S. Seeds Of Service, Inc. The Help Desk works with the sick, the needy and the poor to complete an intake for services.
Goal and Referral Planning: Families with unmet needs meet with the Outreach Department, who assess their current circumstances and see what steps can be taken to help meet these needs. Once completed, families receive a goal sheet to help them understand appointments and referrals. Outreach helps families to meet the goals through case work and concomitant contact.
