Community Links: A Collaborative Model Point of Entry Program

By Cindy E. Block

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 2002

Community Links is a model point of entry program born out of a collaboration between Syracuse Jewish Family Service and the food pantry at Temple Society of Concord. Its goal is to connect pantry patrons to existing human services that can reduce their dependence on emergency food. The Community Links worker functions as a case manager, without the negative stigma frequently attached to "official" case managers. By following up with clients regularly the worker is able to encourage and redirect them as needed, ensuring that they receive the assistance they need. The Community Links program is an easily replicable model.
