COVID-19 Resources

covid19-resources

At John Boner Neighborhood Centers, the health and safety of our customers, neighbors, partners, and staff is important to us.  Please note that all of our staff are working remotely but are ready to assist our neighbors with basic needs, answer any questions or help address challenges they may have during this time.  Whether you need help with rent, utilities, food, or emotional support, we are here to get you connect you to those resources and agencies that can help you.  We are conducting business Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Due to the COVID-19 virus, we have temporarily implemented the procedures outlined below.  Please check back to this page as we will update it as new information is available.  Remember to take care of yourself, your family and each other.
