The Life Center of Hernando Offers Helpful Hints
Others need services for the first time in their lives. When The Life Center opened its doors, our first residents knew more about available services in the community than we did. We have learned a lot. In the process, we compiled information that we think others might find useful.
Over time we hope to add new resources: transportation, weatherproofing, child care, free events and food banks are a few that come to mind. Send your ideas, your testimonies or your frustrations with the system.
A good place to start is going to http://211connects.org/needs-library/ They have a needs library where you can find information on such topics as housing, food, child care and more. Each topic has valuable information, links, and videos about that topic area. Search through their directory or give them a call at 2-1-1.
