The Brighter Future Supportive Services program began in July 2002 to provide ongoing case management and support to families and individuals. The central goal of the program is to help people become more self-sufficient so that they no longer need to rely on agencies for help.
Our program provides a range of services for people seeking to improve their quality of life. Families and individuals receive long-term support and case management to help them achieve self-sufficiency by meeting realistic, achievable, goals.
