Community Outreach


About Community Outreach

Community Outreach Centers are entry points for confidential information, referrals, and services. JCEO operates 15 Community Outreach Centers throughout Clinton and Franklin Counties. Each Community Outreach Center has a Community Outreach Worker ready to assist all people in need. All Community Outreach Centers, with the exception of Tupper Lake and Saranac Lake, include a food pantry.

The Community Outreach Center at JCEO’S main office in Plattsburgh serves families and individuals residing in the City of Plattsburgh and the Towns of Mooers, Schuyler Falls and Beekmantown. All other Community Outreach Centers provide services to families and individuals within their towns.


Food pantries

Community Outreach Centers contain a food pantry that supplies individuals with a three day supply of food, up to eight times per year.

JCEO recovers thousands of pounds a food a month from local grocery stores and the nonprofit Feed America, which is then distributed in our food pantries.


Information and Referrals

Outreach Workers are knowledgeable about all of the services available in their community. If an Outreach Worker cannot help you directly, they will be able to help you contact the agency that can provide assistance.

Application Assistance

Outreach Workers can help individuals apply for programs they qualify for such as SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program), HUD (Housing and Urban Development), Weatherization, Empower, the Clinton County Christmas Bureau, and the Franklin County Holiday Helpers.

As a HEAP (Home Energy Assistance Program) Alternate Certifier in Clinton County, we can provide application assistance for Regular and Emergency HEAP, as well as Emergency Furnace Repair and Replacement, for income eligible renters and homeowners.

Housing Assistance

Families facing eviction and/or homelessness are provided with information, referral and advocacy to appropriate community resources. We offer budgeting assistance to promote self-reliance and prevent future crisis. Funds for rent or security deposits are provided on a case-by-case basis and emergency utility assistance may also be offered.

Summer Camp Scholarships

With funding provided through the Community Services Block Grant, Stewart’s Holiday Match Program, and the Kiwanis Plattsburgh Breakfast Club, income eligible children within Clinton and Franklin Counties can receive scholarships to the Y Kids Camp, Camp Jericho, Basketball Camp, Soccer Camp, and others as requested.


Medicaid Transportation

The Medicaid Transportation Program provides Medicaid eligible individuals with transportation to medical appointments.

If you are eligible for Medicaid and need to request transportation for a medical appointment, you may contact the Community Outreach Center in your town. Individuals residing in the Towns of Schuyler Falls, Beekmantown, Mooers and the City of Plattsburgh may contact the Plattsburgh office for assistance at 518-561-6310.

Or, you can call the Medical Answering Service directly at 1-866-753-4435.

The Medicaid Transportation Program is made possible by our volunteer drivers, and we are always looking for more dedicated individuals to join us! Drivers use their own vehicle and are reimbursed for their mileage. For more information on becoming a volunteer driver, contact us with the form below!
