Outreach & Referral Banner

Individuals and families sometimes need guidance and assistance connecting with Northern Tier Community Action services and appropriate referrals for the services of other area human service agencies. All persons in need are welcomed and encouraged to call and request the assistance of a Case Manager.

All individuals participating in programs at Northern Tier participate in a needs assessment evaluation to determine immediate needs and prioritize how we might provide assistance. From this needs assessment a mutually agreed upon action plan is developed to establish goals and guide the client and the case manager. As part of the goals established, Case Managers will work with the family to develop a monthly cash flow and money management plan. Case Managers will work with individuals and families to develop and increase job seeking and employability skills to increase the potential for employment and self-sufficiency.

It is our goal to empower low-income individuals and families to become self-sufficient.
