South County Services – a Community Safety Net

Toward our goal of building a safety net and ensuring the well being of individuals, families and seniors in the South County region, we offer support and assistance in several areas. We have an array of resources for people needing help to feed their families, stay in their homes, get assistance in acquiring transportation, and access medical exams that are no-cost or low-cost, among other services.

We aim to serve the diversity of people within our region from children to families and seniors. Our success is based on the hard work of a small staff and a strong core of volunteers.
