Supporting Services

Supporting Services:

CityLink Clients who have engaged in a Core Service area and are actively participating in attaining their goals at CityLink 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 goals and Supporting Service goals with one plan, helping them to truly achieve life transformation.

Transportation:

Print Changing Gears 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.

Childcare:

Family Center

Onsite Childcare for children ages 18 months to 7 years is provided to clients of CityLink.  While a client is at the center working on goals from their action plan, they can rest assured that they are leaving their child in the hands of loving, caring adults.  These adults are trained in creating a high energy, interactive educational experience for their children.

Parent Enrichment:
