Richmond community resources program extended until end of 2024

Free drop-in services are available every Sunday at Ironwood Library.
The Community Service Connectors program at Richmond Public Library's Ironwood branch will continue until the end of 2024.

A pilot program to connect Richmondites in need with community services has been extended until the end of the year.

The City of Richmond announced Wednesday that the Community Services Connectors program at Ironwood Library is being extended in response to "demonstrated benefit for residents seeking assistance."

Every Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m., Richmond residents can visit Ironwood Library's Living Room to receive one-on-one assistance from a community services connector while enjoying a drink and a snack.

The program also features "snacks and facts" workshops where local organizations provide information for topics such as renters' rights and housing navigation, employment resources, taxes and benefits and supports for newcomers and persons with disabilities. The workshops are expected to return in the fall.

Originally scheduled to run from Jan. 28 to May 26, the program has assisted almost 200 community members over the past few months.
