Mission: NETWORK's mission is caring, coaching, and empowering our neighbors in need as they seek an improved quality of life. NETWORK was founded in response to a need in the community for a service center for those in need. Currently we are supported by over 70 local businesses, religious organizations, social and civic clubs who provide 85% of all our funding. We do not take government funds and are not a United Way agency. With over 600 volunteers we assist 600 to 800 families per month with food, clothing, limited financial assistance, counseling, gasoline, and many other services. In addition, during the school year, we have a free Adolescent & Children''s Clinic staffed by volunteer doctors and nurses, providing acute care for uninsured children. Also, we have The Seniors' Net providing services such as handyman, counseling, rides, visitation, etc, - to seniors 60 and over with the goal of keeping them independent and living in their homes as long as possible.
