A good place for anyone to start is the Center For People in Need.
The Center has access to several translators, and can help just about anyone who walks through the door. If the people at the Center can’t answer your questions, they probably know people who can.
They publish booklets and guides that list and help explain everything from rent and utility assistance to free or low cost food. They also publish a guide on free or low cost health care services that are available throughout the city. Many of the booklets are available in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Arabic and Karen.
The Center also offer specific assistance to the immigrant and refugee population with help in applying for a social security number, how to find housing, how to use medical services, preparing citizenship documents, and offers classes to help prepare for the citizenship test.
All services are free.
