Community Outreach is a community-based program designed to help people in crisis access services and subsidies in their own community.
People in crisis can call our Centralized Intake Unit (CIU) at:
One of our Centralized Intake Workers will do an initial assessment. Quality of life indicators will be examined in order to respond to the person's needs effectively. Referrals will then be made to the appropriate program(s) or to one of the Community Workers.
A Community Worker can meet with you at our office located at 555 Courthouse Road in Cobourg, or at one of our Community Service Hubs:
With the growing number of seniors here in Northumberland, our Community Workers are committed to working closely with community agencies to help meet the needs of our seniors. Financial supports may be provided to low-income seniors depending on the circumstances, and connections or referrals made to other agencies that serve seniors.
Our department is also a participating member of NEARN (Northumberland Elder Abuse Response Network). NEARN is a not-for-profit organization that raises awareness about Elder Abuse and facilitates the planning and coordination of services related to the prevention of Elder Abuse in the County of Northumberland.
