Community Resource Centers (CRC) Locations

 
We still have a long road to recovery. Anyone who still needs to file for unemployment assistance, SNAP, or non-filer stimulus payments contact the Goodwill CRC closest to you for assistance. Coordinators are asking that you call to set an appointment ahead of time to provide social distancing and to ensure you have the needed documents.

We also have paper unemployment applications in English and Spanish. If you filed for unemployment online and were deemed ineligible, contact our CRC Coordinators. We may be able to help with refiling successfully.
