The Social Services Administration building of the campus is the hub of the activities provided to those in our community who are in need of "a hand up, not a hand out".
Some of the programs administered from this office include:
The Emergency Assistance Programs - Provides crisis counseling, case management services and emergency intervention assistance such as help with emergency utility assistance and food. The goal is to help stabilize these individuals and families, teaching new life skills to the adults when appropriate and strengthening their ability to care for themselves. These services are offered to those in need in the Clearwater community as well as to those in Safety Harbor, Dunedin and the City of Largo north of Ulmerton Rd. Families and individuals in Tarpon Springs, Oldsmar, and Palm Harbor should apply at our Tarpon Springs satellite office.
Housing Services Program - Provides counseling, information, referral and residential housing services to families and individuals who have fallen on hard times or are at risk of becoming homeless.
Seasonal Assistance Programs - Often referred to as our "Christmas Joy Center", offer gifts of food, toys and other spirit-lifting remembrances to disadvantaged families at Thanksgiving, Christmas and other special seasons of the year.
Disaster Services - Offer emergency food and supplies as well as financial support services to those devastated by natural and other disasters.
Administrative support for Transitional Living is also provided from this office
