Needed Services Identified from Needs Assessment

  • Food insecurity after COVID has been high amongst participants, so we started a biweekly MRE drive thru with ready to eat meals. 

  • Assumed pet food would be most requested assistance for pets, however flea, tick, & heartworm medicine, nail trimming & grooming, and annual vaccinations were among the top needs of participants.
