In an effort to provide basic needs to the vulnerable, ranging from seniors to children, St Anne's Center operates several services. Any type of assistance disbursed throughout the Weber County community will be for short term needs. However no matter what the challenge that someone may be faced with, the non-profit can be called upon for help.
Most of the aid is non-monetary. This means that assistance from St Anne's Center will often come in the form of goods (such as clothes or a box of food), emergency shelter or vouchers. Only rarely will the charity be able to provide direct support, and that will also be very limited. These supportive services are coordinated with and referrals are made to local churches, agencies and organizations.
St Anne's Center Case Management and Emergency Assistance offers financial help for working poor, disadvantaged families and individuals living in Weber County who are in a crisis situation. The staff at the charity meet this need by offering referrals, as funds at the center are very limited.
This program focuses on preventing homelessness through rent/mortgage and utility bill help. There may be grants in Weber County for electric, gas bills, water, or phone. For interested parties who live in the city of Ogden, please contact the agency to schedule an appointment to assess eligibility for the program.
The Food Pantry as well as Delivery Team at St Anne's Center created this program to ensure as few people as possible are faced with hunger. The food, as well as hot meals, are available directly to any income qualified, working poor person in the community.
When it comes to meals on Wheels, a delivery is made with up to a few day supply of food. A partnership with area churches as well as Agency on Aging Centers in Weber County Utah that have distribution teams ensures the food is delivered within a timely manner with a special focus on people living with a disability, those who lack transportation or are elderly with special needs.
Shelter or very small numbers of motel vouchers are provided by St Anne's Center. This is done on a night-per-night basis as there is heavy demand and limited resources. The client needs to be homeless and be a resident of Weber County, with verification/proof also needed.
When the local shelters are full, the non-profit will do its best to offer an emergency one-night stay at a local, low cost motel in Ogden. This could be extended in some cases. Any type of placement into a shelter or free motel voucher is combined with a case management process the next day.
The UTAH Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) assists low-income Weber County households whose overall utility expenditures represent a high proportion of their household income. Not being able to pay cooling or heating bills during the winter may cause a home to be unsafe, leaving the occupants at risk of serious injury or illness.
To help with this, the LIHEAP program may be able to offer a form of bill payment assistance. There are also government grants for dealing with an energy crisis. Other assistance includes weatherization services and/or free home repairs. For further information, please call St Anne's Center or the local Department of Social Services.
Being employed in a decent paying job is vital for anyone from Weber County who is working to gain greater stability. St Anne's Center works with adults and youth at all stages of job readiness. The team at the charity organization is involved in providing guidance and assistance with job search basics; career exploration, and training. This includes workplace ethics and communication. They also arrange paid, on-the-job training through internships.
All training from St Anne's Center is combined with case management support to help participants set and reach goals. Many of their programs also offer educational components.
The St. Anne's After-School Program offers an enrichment opportunity as a complement to your child’s school day. This is held in a safe, friendly, and welcoming environment in Ogden. The service is licensed by the Office of Children and Family Services, through the Child Care Council, and is run in strict accordance with the state of Utah School-Age Child Care Regulations.
As noted, while some direct aid is provided at the center, much of the other support is met by referrals. The address is 137 West Binford Avenue in Ogden, Utah 84401. Call the charity at (801) 621-5036.
