    1. I would need to ask a few questions to determine what services this individual tapped into. Is the individual homeless, unemployed and and/or receiving any state assistance. Depending on the actual needs. We work closely with shelters, Department of Social Services for TANF, SNAP or medical assistance. We work well with local food pantries and churches to provide a client with immediate meals. We work with local workforce agencies and other employers within the community.
    2. We use the Economic Resilient Measurement Tool to assess barriers in varies areas and to track clients progress towards economic resiliency. Additionally, it is important to develop good communication with the client and strong community partnerships.
