The Servant Center knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Our mission is to empower the homeless and disabled, particularly veterans, to become independent, contributing members of our community through housing, healthcare, and restorative services.
The Servant Center is in the business of changing and shaping lives. The work we do at The Servant Center is aimed at providing a holistic approach to solving some of our society’s biggest challenges. We make sure our partners are empowered by creating opportunities for individuals and communities.
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.
