Supporting Services

Supporting Services:

CityLink Clients who have engaged with, or are actively participating in, a Core Service area have access to an incredible line-up of additional supporting services from these great partners. From counseling to transportation, clients have access to 15 different supporting services,  all at one location. Clients navigate through their Core Service and Supporting Service goals with one plan, helping them to truly achieve life transformation.



ChangingGears provides access to affordable, private transportation by using a model to sell vehicles that is similar to the model used by Habitat for Humanity to sell houses. Vehicles are sold to qualified clients at fair market value with a no-interest loan. Rather than experiencing the entitlement that comes when resources are given and not earned, ChangingGears’ clients will be empowered on their journey to economic stability through earned ownership by purchasing their vehicles.


Children Inc.‘s mission is to advance the success of all children by partnering with families, professionals and the community through exemplary services, training, research and advocacy. They seek a culture of innovation, collaboration, and shared leadership to accomplish this goal.

Located inside CityLink is VISIONS Early Learning Center, a division of Children, Inc. VISIONS aims to create a beautiful and safe learning environment for children. The teachers at VISIONS focus on both education and children’s social and emotional development. This center includes hands-on learning materials and a large, well-equipped playground, which both serve to advance children’s development. Children ages 6 weeks to 5 years are eligible for full-time enrollment, and drop off services are available to children of CityLink clients ages 2.5 – 5 years.

Beech Acres’ sole mission is Strengthening Families for Children.   Parent Enrichment classes are based on the guiding principle that parents, and other dedicated adults filling that role, all want the best for their children, and all need education, support and guidance in raising their children to achieve their unique potential.  The Parent Enrichment classes focus on the following topics: Parenting Styles, Communicating with your Child, Stress Management, and Healthy Discipline.

4C for Children

4C for Children provides free resources and referrals to help families find and choose quality early learning and care.   When a client exits CityLink Center, finding quality childcare is a priority.  By working with our partners at 4C for Children, CityLink is able to connect clients to a specialist who is committed to finding childcare that meets their specific needs. 4C also offers a Parent Enrichment class that helps parents understand the critical first 5 years of life for child brain development. The Blink series helps parents build a foundation for success in school and life.
