About Part of the Solution (POTS)
POTS’ unique ‘one-stop shop’ approach offers a variety of services to move people from the crises of poverty to stability and, ultimately, self-sufficiency. POTS’ community dining room and food pantry address the evident need for basic nutrition. POTS’ Day-to-Day Services provide individuals with other essentials of daily living – a mailing address for important correspondence, shower facilities that allow for proper hygiene and presentable clothes to wear to school or an important interview. POTS’ case managers, social workers, and staff attorneys help clients address crises such as an eviction notice or financial distress and take necessary steps to stabilize and improve their lives. POTS’ Family Club provides education, social, and nutrition support to a select group of families who also meet one-on-one with a social worker to work on long- and short-term goals. To round its comprehensive package of support, POTS hosts Immigrant Justice Corps Community Fellows to provide immigration counsel as well as a medical and dental clinic.
