Due to the pandemic, Pierce County Human Services is unable to conduct normal outreach activities. The solution? A well-equipped van that brings services directly to residents.

Enter the Mobile Resource Center.

The Mobile Resource Center will provide on-site support to residents across Pierce County by connecting them with COVID-19 relief programs such as mortgage and rental assistance, free transportation, and senior nutrition. In addition to emergency relief programs, participants also can apply for regular services offered by Pierce County, including energy assistance and home repair, according to a release.

Human Services is partnering with organizations to host the Mobile Resource Center at locations across the county. It is funded through the Federal CARES Act and is managed by staff in the Aging and Disability Resources, Veterans, Community Services, and Community Action divisions of the Human Services Department, according to a release.
