SOCIAL SERVICE REFERRAL
When South Bay Outreach Center can't provide an immediate solution to a client's problem or challenge we find a partner agency to help.
We do not just provide an name and a number and pass our clients off to another agency; we help them understand the referral agency's process and many times stay with them through the process as a mentor or coach. Our objective is to get our client's the help they need.
