Since Monday, August 28, HCFS has been assisting the displaced families from Hurricane Harvey who are resettling in our area with either relatives, friends or in a hotel, as part of a FEMA program to provide temporary shelter. We are supporting these families RIGHT NOW with food, diapers, formula, counseling and other critical services. We need your help!
WHEN FAMILIES IN BOERNE AND KENDALL COUNTY NEED HELP, THEY TURN TO HILL COUNTRY FAMILY SERVICES.
Because our programs work.
Hill Country Family Services is the world’s developer of Integrated Informed Care (I2C). I2C is a framed approach and process intended to maximize the effectiveness of programs and agencies across the community by wholly assessing a client’s condition and circumstances, and using that information to design a plan of care that most effectively addresses the short and long-term challenges being faced by the client.
What does this mean? We look at the whole person and family, and develop a plan of action that addresses the mental, physical, financial and nutritional health of our clients. It’s the most effective and cost efficient way to successfully achieve success.
Our sole agenda is this: to make our community a better place by assisting families who are facing challenges. We do this without regard to a person’s gender, faith, country of origin or political belief.
WHAT DOES SUCCESS LOOK LIKE?
We get this question a lot! We define success for each client, based on their individual circumstances. For example:
- Example – Providing integrated assistance for a senior with fixed income and increasing cost of living: Prescription Assistance + Food Assistance + YMCA Membership = Higher and Healthier Quality of Life
- Example – Assisting a young couple who has lost their jobs and face eviction for the inability to pay rent: Food Assistance + Financial Assistance + Resume Writing Class + Job Skill Training = Regained Independence)
- Example – A mother and children leaving the Women’s Shelter after escaping domestic violence: Food Assistance + Clothing Assistance + Rental Deposit Assistance = Established Independence
- Example – A family displaced by Hurricane Harvey is staying with relatives, and was not able to bring essentials: Food Assistance + Diaper Assistance + Counseling = Financial Stability and Stronger Mental Health
WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Your gift of $100, $250, $500 or $1,000 or more is extremely important because it offers immediate resources that are directed to current needs within our client programs. If you’d like to designate your gift to a specific program – counseling, food, clothing or emergency financial assistance – please let us know.
