Community Progress Council integrates services in Red Lion hub
Community Progress Council is pleased to announce it has integrated its services in the Red Lion area and is now operating a “hub” model in Windsor Manor Elementary School, effective November 1, 2022.
This strategic move places supplemental nutrition services through the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program in the same location as two of CPC’s early childhood education Head Start classrooms. The location will also be staffed with Resource Navigators and coaches to listen to a family’s needs, provide referrals, and help them connect with supportive services and one-on-one coaching within Community Progress Council.
“Progress toward economic self-sufficiency requires comprehensive, integrated services,” said Robin Rohrbaugh, President/CEO, Community Progress Council. “Intentionally re-designing our service delivery model to co-locate programs and better support our families’ comprehensive needs is a key strategic priority for Community Progress Council.”
“Families with children 3 to 5 years old who qualify for Head Start based on household income are also eligible for services through the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program, but often don’t connect to both services because transportation is a barrier,” Robin continued. “One service location in the Red Lion community will help to reduce barriers our families may experience in accessing services that can empower them toward self-sufficiency.”
Community Progress Council services will be offered at Windsor Manor Elementary School, 2110 Windsor Road, Windsor, PA 17366, from 8:30 to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The Women, Infants, & Children (WIC) program will also offer appointments until 6:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month and the fourth Thursday of each month.
Anyone can call Community Progress Council at 717-846-4600 and select 0 to connect with a Resource Navigator.
