Holistic Services Geared Toward Attaining Self-Sufficiency and Independence- Cochran Firm Reports on Adventist Community Services
Adventist Community Services offers services tailored to help grief stricken and disadvantaged individuals and families throughout the Washington, DC area.
Crisis Intervention and Disaster Relief Services – The cost of living in the Washington Metropolitan area is quite high. With this in mind, ACSGW offers services to individuals and families who may have lost a loved one or don’t have the income to provide themselves with the basic necessities. Through their food bank, food assistance is provided to those that are eligible. Clothes, coats and shoes in good condition are also provided to the needy through their community closet. Prescription drug payment and rental assistance for those facing eviction and/or foreclosure is offered when funds are available. Additionally, ACSGW has a tremendous case management program that facilitates finding an array of other available services and resources for its participants.
When disaster strikes, Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington will be there to help. Just as they did after the September 11, 2001 attack on the Pentagon, in the event of a disaster, ACSGW will collaborate with regional emergency management agencies to provide relief. This relief response often includes the collection and distribution of non-perishable food, clothing, cleaning supplies, personal care items, and items for the special needs of infants and small children like diapers and toys to comfort them.
The Adult Basic Education Programs – The basic education program offered by ACSGW aims solely toward bringing their clients closer to independence and allow them to meet their financial responsibilities. This program is comprised of English as a Second Language, Job Preparedness Training, Life Skills Classes, and Basic Computer Training Classes all taught for a nominal monthly fee.
Workforce Development – ACSGW offers adult learners a non-threatening haven where they are able to enhance their current skills and acquire new skills allowing them to achieve personal and career goals. Through their workforce development program, three computer certification programs are offered – A+ Certification Program, Networking+ Certification Program and Security+ Certification Program. Costs range from $75-$150 per month, and students gain hands-on experience and in-class instruction to prepare them for taking their respective National Certification exams.
To assist their clients who are striving to become self-sufficient and productive in the community, ACSGW provides Job Quest. Job Quest is a workshop held on Fridays from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon where attendees can learn tailored job searching skills and benefit from resume and cover letter assistance. Job Quest instructors help participants build online profiles and create interview follow-up strategies. Free computer lab and one-on-one career mentoring are also available.
