We serve everyone in our community.  In addition, we also provide certain programs for residents who are underserved. The underserved are principally working residents between the ages of 18 to 64, and are uninsured. We provide a safety net, and link them to available community services. We also provide certain direct services that are not available or not accessible within our community.
