Our Service Connection program area is designed to address the whole range of an individual’s or family’s needs by connecting people with the necessary support and by helping build their capacity to improve their own lives and move toward self-sufficiency. In 2017-18, we funded 28 projects for a total of $2,951,594. Our grantees connected 3,677 clients to appropriate resources and services. They also provided case management to 1,445 individuals, including development of an Individual Service Plan (ISP).
