"For this multifaceted human service agency, helping others is what we do best," said Community Service Center Director Phillippa Lewis Moss. "At some point in each of our lives, we will find ourselves in a place where we either need help or have a need to help others.
"The Gainesville-Hall County Community Service Center is the place where services are offered and volunteer needs are fulfilled. Residents of Gainesville and Hall County can ride the public bus system, get extra support through community outreach, or take part in programs designed to enrich the lives of mature adults such as the Senior Life Center and Meals on Wheels.
"Our hope is that these efforts uplift and strengthen our community."

The CSC is committed to the overall wellness of our community. By wellness, we mean the physical, mental and spiritual health of our family, friends and neighbors. The project list for the Community Outreach Division varies from year to year depending on the needs of the community.
