DISABILITY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

Through this program our disability specialists assist clients who are un- and under- insured, at-risk of homelessness or experiencing homelessness to apply for both SSI and SSDI benefits. This is an important step in helping them improve their lives by securing access to medical care and often access to housing. We utilize SAMSHA's SOAR model for those who are eligible.

HOUSING THE HOMELESS

The Servant Center steps up to meet gaps in the needs of the community by offering a continuum of services to veterans and those with disabilities who are at risk for, or experiencing homelessness. Services provided includes benefit assistance, transitional housing, permanent housing, and housing stability services.

AMERICORPS

The AmeriCorps Partnership to End Homelessness, a program of The Servant Center, exists to provide services and hope to Guilford County neighbors experiencing homelessness or who are at-risk for homelessness. Approximately 30 members serve in 13 sites to meet housing, employment, and food insecurity needs.
