On Tuesday, November 20th, we will have a limited number of new openings for those interested in receiving case management, counseling, and legal support at TASSC!

If you are still in need of case management, counseling or legal support at this time, please come to TASSC on November 20th between 10am - 12pm to sign up for an intake appointment.

You will then be contacted by a case manager to determine a time that works for you both to meet for this first appointment.

* Please note, intake sign-up will be on a first come, first serve basis. This means that those who arrive first will be at the top of the list to be contacted by a case manager. TASSC opens at 9am and there may be some individuals who choose to come at this time to get in line. This is fine, however, registration will not start until 10am.

If you aren’t able to make it this month - don’t worry! We will be open for additional intakes in the coming months!
