DCP-CONNECTIONS board roster-2015


CONNECTIONS links people and service providers throughout the county by maintaining a database of information on available community resources and providing contact information for a broad range of services.  Numerous service providers (PACE, Salvation Army, Feed My Sheep, St. Vincent and Trustees) as well as area churches refer calls for assistance to CONNECTIONS.  CONNECTIONS in turn completes an application with the caller to identify the need for assistance, current work history, residential history, household members and income, then verifies the information and tries to find resources that can help the family.  CONNECTIONS maintains a database of all calls and applications which helps identify the number of times the person has requested and received assistance.  The goal of CONNECTIONS is to reduce the occurrence of duplication of services and minimize the misuse and exploitation of the limited resources in Daviess County.  CONNECTIONS does not give out monetary assistance.

CONNECTIONS managed 4,822 calls for information and assistance in 2015 and helped 1,266household members receive $50,419 in assistance for basic needs.
