HCCSI receives a Grant from the Harrison County Community Foundation

Harrison County Community Services, Inc. (HCCS) is pleased to announce it has received an $80,977.00 grant from the Harrison County Community Foundation. These funds will provide the needed equipment for a new Mobile Office. 

The Mobile Office will consist of a truck and a customized enclosed trailer, equipped with a refrigerator, freezer, shelving and a complete office set up. The Mobile Office will be in operation two days a week and will be in a total of eight locations each month. The Mobile Office will be capable of providing all the services that are currently only available at the main office in Corydon. HCCS found throughout the COVID-19 pandemic that when they take services TO the community, many more residents are reached. While they saw a decrease in services at the main office, they were able to still provide services at almost 2019 levels by distributing food through the Mobile Food Pantry, Home Delivery and at School Lunch Distribution sites. All of these services were provided by taking food TO the people.

“For forty-five years, we have been providing services to help the most vulnerable individuals in our community--services such as the Food Pantry, Clothes Closet, Direct Assistance, Home Delivery and the Mobile Food Pantry,” said Richard Cooper, Executive Director, Harrison County Community Services, Inc. “We believe that if we can take the food and other services to residents in their townships – their neighborhoods – people will be more likely to get the help they need.”

HCCS is currently working on securing the locations for the Mobile Office and ordering all of the equipment. Plans are to be able to launch the Mobile Office program by early fall – depending on manufacturing timelines. Updates will be announced as the project progresses.
