The Social Service Center


The American Rescue Workers Social Services Center is the prevention entity of the organization, taking a holistic approach to prevention by not only providing financial assistance to those in need, but also providing case management services to help clients get to the core of their issues so that they do not repeat. Annually 6,500 individuals receive these services, including as many as 700 families who receive groceries each month from the ARW Social Services Center.

If you know of someone in need or find yourself in an emergency situation, please call our Social Service Center for additional information, appointment, and available funding.
