Community Resource Center Opens in AJ

Mondays, 1-4 p.m. @ Genesis Project

A community resource center has opened at The Genesis Project to connect the community with much needed support.

Representatives from a variety of organizations offer on-site office hours to share information with those in need who are seeking help. Services include a mentorship program, health care, employment and signing up for benefits from the Arizona Department of Economic Security, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, medical insurance and social security, legal services, housing and free cell phones.

The center will be open Mondays from 1-4 p.m. at The Genesis Project, 564 N. Idaho Rd., Suite 5, in Apache Junction. The list of services offered change each week.

Additionally, the resource center offers those without adequate heating and air conditioning a place to escape from the cold or heat of the desert. The Genesis Project serves hot lunches Monday through Friday from noon-2 p.m. and is listed as a hydration station and heat respite during the harsh summer months.

The resource center is made possible by a partnership including The Genesis Project, United Way of Pinal County, the city of Apache Junction, the Apache Junction Chronic Homeless Committee and others who provide services during center hours.

For more information, call Heather Patel at the city of Apache Junction, 480-474-2635.
