Our Community Services Program provides two types of assistance for qualifying community members in Williamson & Burnet Counties.
Case Management for Self-Sufficiency Program
For qualifying families, we provide one-on-one coaching and assistance to help households increase their job skills, education, and wages. Case Management services, for low income residents, are designed to eliminate poverty and foster self-sufficiency. Trained case management professionals guide and support clients to successful outcomes, like obtaining employment, education, budget training and more.
Comprehensive Energy Assistance Program (CEAP)
The Comprehensive Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) is designed to assist low income households in meeting their energy needs. In Texas, we know this can be a challenge–especially in the heat of summer. We help pay heating and electric bills, for those who qualify. We educate our clients on how to control energy costs, now and in the future, through energy education.
Household members who participate in the following benefit programs may also qualify for CEAP:
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
Some needs-tested Veterans benefits
Household income is below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level
