Mission Statement

Prevail provides immediate and compassionate response to individuals and families facing financial crisis and offers them supportive services leading to future stability.

Description

Our Emergency Assistance and Referrals Program assists clients with emergency needs, such as eviction and utility shut-off prevention, food, clothing and shelter, and with financial stability supports such as identification assistance, transportation to a new job and affordable pet vaccinations and food. Our volunteers listen compassionately to clients’ needs and use solution-based counseling and a combination of direct assistance and referrals to address immediate and systemic concerns.

Our Job Readiness Program provides employment counseling and assistance for individuals searching for sustainable employment and includes skills and career assessment, resume and cover letter development, interview coaching, employment sustainability skills and teaching of basic computer skills necessary to conduct an independent job search. Prevail works closely with other area agencies for additional training and job placement assistance for qualified clients.

Our Financial Literacy Program provides money management counseling to help clients achieve financial stability and plan for future financial well-being and is offered once a month in a small class format which includes one-on-one individualized counseling and follow-up sessions.
