Many of the services offered at the Karsh Family Social Service Center have been designed to address immediate problems, such as hunger, illness, and legal issues. Once those immediate needs have been addressed, the Center continues to be a one-stop location where individuals can develop ongoing relationships with dedicated professionals.
The Karsh Family Social Service Center provides an array of services. Our goal is to help connect community members to services needed. We understand that emergencies can happen at any time. Here are a few resources, outside of the Karsh Center, that are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
