About the Vickers House
This Resource Center offers the Community a compassionate place to receive information, referrals, counseling, translation assistance, and aid with problems and crises; a place where community resources are brought together to offer a “one-stop” assistance center.
The Vickers House provides partnerships with colleges for Student Internships, Volunteer Opportunities, and Community Service hours.
This center offers a variety of services for veterans, homeless, women in crises, youth, elderly, and families, as well as information and referrals for jobs, training, housing, shelters, child care, food programs, emergency assistance, literacy, and transportation.
There are also services for special populations, such as people with Mental or Physical Disabilities or those who are Homeless. We have also established an outreach program for the Guatemalan and Latino community, as well as referrals and assistance for any member of our Latino Community.
The Vickers House conducts special events, trainings, on-going self-improvement classes, ESOL, Family Literacy, Health Screenings, Job Fairs, Assistance with Medicaid, Food Stamps, etc.— All of these programs are developed to initiate community partnerships and act as a matchmaker to link and coordinate services in the community.
