LINC Cares provides dynamic services to enhance the lives of the families, seniors
and people with special needs who live in our communities. Our programs are offered
at no cost right where residents live which uniquely positions LINC Cares to
create positive outcomes and opportunities among the households we serve. Activities
include: After-School and Summer Programs, Health Classes, Job Skills, Financial
Literacy, Social Events, Nature Outings, and Arts and Culture Activities as well as
Fieldtrips. We also promote environmentally sustainable living throughout our programs
including workshops on green household practices.
We are intentional in developing activities and interventions that lead to specific
outcomes for our residents. Each program is designed with mechanisms that measure the
impact of services. In addition to providing high-quality programming, LINC Cares brings
together volunteers and charitable foundations to help build on our residents
strengths. In so doing, we all work together to create stronger communities.
To support this effort, Resident Service Coordinators are assigned directly to
communities to build relationships with residents, assess needs, provide resources,
and coordinate volunteers to facilitate LINC Cares life-enhancing services.
BBQs, movie nights, games, ice cream socials, block parties, emergency
preparedness workshops, intergenerational activities, and special holiday celebrations
are a few examples of resident on-site events. These activities are planned and organized
with residents and volunteers so they are truly community events.
