Connecting to Advantages helps connect you to the services that you deserve!

Key words: Health Info, Services, Low-income, Governmental Aid, Government Aid, Food Stamps, Assistance Programs.

Connecting to Advantages is an organization that helps refer people to the government benefits that they qualify for.

To do this, they train volunteer community members- people who access the same Public Assistance, SSI, Medicaid and Food Stamps as their clients- to do the referral work.

There's no case manager telling you how to navigate the system- instead you have people like you, who also use these programs, helping you figure out how to get the services you deserve. They go to many locations throughout the city.
