Basic Services
 
Our goal is to assist you and your family in becoming more self-sufficient and providing a hand up along the way. You can enroll or be referred to CWAH for basic needs services for a one time visit. These services include: Food Pantry, Clothing Boutique, Toiletries, Household Items, and Furnishings and Appliances. A scheduled appointment is required to complete an application with our Family Coordinator.
 
We accept referrals from:
  • Social Services Agencies, Religious and Educational Institutions, and Human Services Agencies (case workers, social workers, pastors, counselors, etc.)
  • Authorized personnel making the referral who are informed about the individual's living situation and reasons for basic need services
  • Referrals may also be made over the phone, via CWAH Staff or Board Member
In order to receive services, you are required to:
  • Engage in creating an active plan to become more self-sufficient
  • Consistently participate in relevant programs and/or workshops
  • Communicate any changes in status to the Family Coordinator
*Please note that certain items such as furniture, appliance, etc. may not be available to a new enrollee because the participating CWAH clients take precedence for those items. Should no actively enrolled client need those particular items, a new referral may be able to receive those particular items.
 
If you or someone you know is in need of our services, please contact Lisa Summers, Family Coordinator at lsummers@cwah.org or 314-289-7523.
