Earlier this month, County Executive Delagrave announced the Here to Help program. Under Here to Help, the staff is proactively reaching out to families who have been involved with county assistance programs to address whether their essential needs are being met. These needs include rent, food, and other basic financial needs; access to resources such as shelter and free meals; mental health counseling; unemployment services; and – importantly – personal safety, including domestic violence and child abuse and neglect. Anyone with questions, or who are in need of services, should email [email protected] or call (262) 638-6400.
