Neighbors Exchange Dec 09,2011

Posted by katieschmahl on December 23, 2011

Neigbors Exchange Dec 09/2011

The meeting that took place on December 9 of this year in the TESS Center facility was of great importance to the residents of the area. At the meeting,  Community Connectors from the Department of Health and Human Services shared valuable information.

The main issue addressed at the Neighbors Exchange was access to food resources. Connectors and residents discussed food stamps (how to qualify for this program and what requirements are necessary). They also addressed the issue of other emergency food programs such as Manna Food and others that are very close to Long Branch and accessible to anyone with the need for food.

The main objective of these meetings is to increase awareness of resources and provide space for neighbors to connect with each other. Residents  who make new connections and friends can communicate and transmit information  to others who might be unaware of these county programs that are very useful tools in these difficult times.


El encuentro de vecinos que se llevo a cabo el día 09 de Diciembre del presente año en la instalaciones del Centro TESS, fue de mucha importancia para los vecinos del área, ya que  se compartió información muy valiosa que fue proporcionada por las conectoras del condado de Montgomery.

El tema principal que se abordo en el intercambio de vecinos fue el de Estampillas de comida ( stamp food) como calificar para este programa ? y que requisitos son necesarios. También se abordo el tema de otros programas de emergencia de alimentos como Manna Food y otros que están muy cerca de Long Branch  accesibles a cualquier persona que tenga la necesidad de alimentos.

El objetivo principal de estos intercambios de vecinos, es que se conozcan, que se hagan amigos que se comuniquen y que transmitan la información que se les proporciona a otros que probablemente desconozcan de estos programas del condado que son herramientas muy útiles en estos tiempos difíciles.
