Our Representative Payee Services program assists our clients by managing their monthly benefits, including Social Security benefits and Veterans benefits. We ensure all their major bills are paid, including rent, utilities, phone, insurance, and cable. We also distribute weekly checks from their own accounts to clients to ensure they have money throughout the month. We work with community partners including case managers and mental health counselors to ensure clients’ needs are being met.
