Community Assistance during Covid 19 closures
Due to the precautions we are taking to continue to keep our community safe there are some changes with the services our Social Worker can help with. While the Church office is closed our Social Worker is helping as many clients as possible. She is no longer seeing clients in person at the office but she is returning calls to messages left on the client line 859-233-0723 at any time.
Unfortunately we are currently unable to help with the following:
• Food Handler’s Permits because that requires you to come in person to take the test on the computer.
We can help with:
