City ordinance requires all to wear masks in public places
Due to the aggressive spread of COVID-19 virus in our state, the City of Clemson just passed a temporary emergency ordinance requiring all to wear face coverings in public places to reduce the risk of transmission of virus. Click here for details.
Client information during COVID19
Our hours have not changed, but our procedures have. Social distancing as well as procedures put forth by our board of directors are in place.
For Food, we are asking you to park at the back of the building and phone us at 864-653-4460. We will bring your food to your car.
For utility and rent assistance, we will conduct interviews inside in our conference room. It is best to phone for an appointment, but if you don’t have an appointment, phone from your car Monday through Thursday between 9 and 10:30. We will meet you at the door for your temperature check. We have required masks if you don’t have your own. Phone us at 864-653-4460 if you have any questions or any special needs in paying your rent and utility bills due to the ongoing COVID19 epidemic or if you need assistance with SNAP applications or renewals.
