The Outreach Connection's Foundations Program is designed to provide the essential items needed to build a solid foundation for success. Each step of the way, every person who uses our Foundations program will be met with dignity and heartfelt support from one of our Resource Mentors. We hope by providing the absolute essentials, they will be able to have a firm foundation to build up from.
We have helped over 100 individuals receive the assistance and essential supplies they needed.
Our resource mentors are helpful partners to our clients. This team of volunteers works one on one with clients to be a source of support and guidance. The goal is to connect our clients to opportunities for success. Whether helping with their resume, providing information on services they need, applying for a job, providing them with our hygiene essentials, or taking them to get items at our giving center, they are crucial to ensuring our clients are on the best path for a more successful future.
Our resource room will be open by appointment only and serve as a free location to utilize our computers. Individuals can work on their resumes, complete online seminars and workshops, apply for jobs online, conduct research, and utilize a plethora of support. Enrichment Mentors will be available during select times as well to assist in anyway that they can.
Our household supplies bank is continuously stocked with essential items needed in a home. This includes bedding, towels, pots, pans, dishes, utensils, small appliances, kitchen gadgets, and more. Whether you just moved in to a new place or cannot afford to replace a tattered comforter or broken dishes, our clients will be able to schedule a private appointment where they can select items at NO COST to them. Our goal is to ensure their dollars stretch further for household expenses, all while helping them achieve success and personal growth.
Our clothing banks are fully stocked with a variety of clothing options for men, women, and children of all ages. We aim to supply each person with a week's worth of in-season clothing that they can choose and try on to make sure the clothing fits their style and size preference. Each person will also be provided shoes, socks, and underwear at their request. Clothing bank visits are by appointments only.
Our bra bank is fully stocked with new or VERY gently used, in exceptional condition, bras. Women in hardship continually struggle to obtain bras, and correctly sized bras are even harder to come across. We provide the dignity based shopping experience with a private fitting room to make sure these items fit correctly.
