SACA Program Updates April 6, 2020

In times of crisis, SACA, like other human service agencies, is continuing to provide life-sustaining services to those who would not otherwise be served.

Centro Hispano’s Community Meals Program now provides 2 meals, 6 days a week in a “brown bag grab & go”. We are grateful for the cooperation and support we have received from the Central PA Food Bank and the Lancaster County Office of Aging to keep the food flowing. The program provides an average of 200 meals per day (and growing) as this pandemic situation continues.

Tec Centro, our workforce development center, has transitioned to offering classes online. This is a short-term solution since many of the classes involve hands-on modeling and in-person internships. Limited case management for job seekers and career navigation services for the students are now offered over the phone and virtually.

Nuestra Clinica Behavioral Health is grateful to our state agencies and managed care organizations for allowing a temporary change in the manner that services are provided. Therapeutic services continue and mental health counseling is still open for new and existing clients. We are treating approximately 200 clients per week.

Our drug and alcohol program continues to serve clients with Medications Assisted Treatment. Approximately 50 clients are seen weekly, and counseling sessions continue for 60 to 80 clients weekly. Both of SACA’s residential programs Nuestra Clinica Residencial (NCR) and La Casa Halfway House continue to operate at full capacity with additional safe guards added to protect both clients and staff.

WLCH Radio Centro continues on air, providing essential information to our listening audience during the crisis. Be sure to tune in to 91.3FM Lancaster/100.3FM York.
