Social Service Consultations
Suffield Community Aid serves as a safety net for residents experiencing financial and other challenges. Residents reach out to SCA when they don’t know where else to turn. They may have lost a job, suffered a health crisis, need help caring for an aging parent or experiencing financial hardship. SCA is here to offer the resources and support that community members require to move forward in their lives.
Through social work consultations, our goal is to help residents achieve self-sufficiency, preserve economic well-being and adjust to difficult circumstances and events in their lives. By partnering our own immediate relief programs with other government and private resources, we are able to maximize eligibilities and alleviate hardships to promote better overall individual and family functioning.
Specific services provided to qualified Suffield residents include the following:
- medical and financial assistance for defined needs
- benefit & credit counseling
- food bank assistance
- bereavement support
- senior & disabled outreach
- Meals on Wheels
- Holiday Basket Programs
- energy assistance
- camp subsidies
- rental rebates
and information & referral on a myriad of other supportive programs and services.
