OUR Center (Outreach United Resource Center) helps people move toward self-sufficiency by unifying community resources. The organization provides emergency services to help people through short-term financial crises and to work in partnership with them to develop case plans for those needing longer-term assistance. OUR Center offers programs ranging from emergency assistance with rent, utilities, food, clothing, shelter, and transportation, to longer term programs that help many of our participants solve underlying problems such as financial difficulties and unemployment. These longer term programs are handled by trained Resource Specialists, who help each person discover his or her own personal resources, strengths, and skills. Participants are taught useful life skills, problem solving, budgeting and planning. OUR Resource Specialists also connect participants with other community resources needed to create financial stability for themselves and their families.
