The Action Center provides a range of seasonal services as part of its prevention focus. Because additional one-time purchases at certain points in the year can be difficult on a limited budget, the Action Center steps in during these times to help prevent clients from making a difficult decision such as deciding between paying a bill or buying school supplies.
All clients needing these must be registered before the day of the event. Always bring a photo ID and proof of Jefferson County residency.
Parents and legal guardians of children from newborn to 12 years old can “shop” for gifts that ensure a positive, happy holiday season. Items are limited and based on size of family as well as the age of children. Please see detailed instructions on how to receive supplies HERE. Be prepared with photo ID, child birth certificates or proof of guardianship, and proof of Jefferson County residency.
The Action Center provides Thanksgiving Food Boxes the weekend before Thanksgiving in November. The boxes contain the fixings to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for their household. Families will also be given a certificate toward the purchase of a turkey or ham from their local grocer. Please see the information below in English and Spanish. You will need to provide photo ID and proof of Jefferson County residency.
A week or two before school begins, clients can receive a bag of school supplies containing most of the essential items their child needs. Backpacks are given one per family. Please click on the link below to get details on how to pick up supplies. You will need to provide photo ID, child birth certificates or proof of guardianship, and proof of Jefferson County residency are all necessary.
