Referral Services

CCACHS staff make every effort to remain well-informed of the many services that are available to assist low income families in resolving their crisis and become more self-sufficient. In so doing:

  1. All staff are encouraged to and do participate on other organization’s boards and advisory committees offering a voice for low-income family needs.
  2. The agency completes a comprehensive intake survey for all persons seeking assistance through its programs to determine the applicant’s overall needs and direct all necessary referrals.
  3. The agency assists some local phone directories in developing and maintaining their “Guide to Carbon County Human Services” and serves as a local contact for anyone needing more information or help in identifying a problem.

As such, anyone in need of information concerning available community services or guidance on any below resources may contact Sue Jaeger at 610-377-6400 (x227) or
