The Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley is more than just free meals and overnight shelter. In addition to exciting educational opportunities, the Mission provides clients with access to our licensed social worker and social work interns. Together, this team is able to assist clients by overcoming barriers to employment and provide a plan for a sustainable transition when they leave the Mission.
Because of one licensed social worker on staff and our experience with YSU, KSU and a number of online colleges – we enjoy the help of several social work interns at the undergraduate and graduate level.
Add to that the collaboration in house of Catholic Charities, D&E Counseling, Turning Point Counseling, the Veterans Administration and Legal Aid we are able to continue to serve a population in need.
Client Social Services assistance at Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley includes:
- Identification Recovery – many who come to the Mission have no driver’s license or state ID
- Obtaining a certified copy of a birth certificate – many times the first step in ID recovery.
- Recovery counseling
- Life skills coaching
- Creation of a plan to transition from homelessness to rejoining the community as a productive member of society.
- And much more…
