Human Services: A Safety Net for Citizens

City Manager Greg Lewis is joined by Deputy City Manager Paula Maville and Acting Human Services Director Lynne Goodwin to discuss the ever growing need for resident assistance. The City of Lebanon’s task is to provide a safety net for citizens through temporary financial assistance for their essential needs to allow them adequate opportunity to build toward achieving self-sufficiency.  

90% of resident assistance provided is shelter related.  Lebanon is fortunate to have a vast network of agencies which provide a safety net to residents until they can get back on their feet.  An ideal resource center is the City’s website where residents can obtain an assistance application as well as link to various other local and state agencies where help can be sought.  

We all need a little help now and then.
