Youth & Family Services
Our Youth Enrichment component consists of after-school and summer programs as
well as one-to-one tutoring. During the critical hours between 3:00 and 6:00 pm,
when children are most likely to be victimized or participate in criminal activity,
the LINC Cares after-school programs provide homework assistance, arts and crafts
activities, and a chance to participate in organized recreation. These programs
keep children safe, help working families improve their students academic
and emotional development, and provide enjoyable recreation to the youth in our
communities. Tutoring allows children to receive individualized attention as well
as a positive relationship with a mentor.
Our family programs include classes in subjects such as job readiness,
résumé building, financial literacy, ESL, and computer
Resource & Referrals
LINC Cares builds on the strengths of each community that we serve by identifying
local resources that cater to our residents needs. LINC Cares staff ensures
information on these resources is available to our residents and partners with
these agencies to set up referrals and coordinate activities and educational
workshops to help achieve the best community outcomes.
Health & Wellbeing
LINC Cares Health and Wellbeing Program is a collection of services designed
to promote healthy living among both our family and senior residents. For
families, networks of support, access, and awareness are built through
activities such as health fairs, community resource referral, and other
community engagement activities. Our seniors participate in various fitness
programs like tai chi, water aerobics, chair exercise, and walking groups.
They also learn more about healthy eating through nutrition classes.
