Our services

At Columbia Life Network, we connect Columbia Borough residents and those in nearby communities with the help and hand up they need to overcome life’s challenges.

 

Personal Office Navigation

From 8 a.m. until noon Monday through Friday, you can visit our office and get help connecting with the resources you need. Our staff will also help you work through the various systems and processes involved in requesting aid or finding employment.

Pressley Ridge Behavioral/Mental Health Services

For approximately 10 years, we’ve worked with Pressley Ridge to bring behavioral and mental health services to the Columbia community on-site, in our office.

Power Packs Project

This program feeds nearly 150 families (almost 600 people) throughout the school year. Community Life Network handles the fundraising responsibilities for this volunteer-run initiative that’s made possible by Columbia Church of God and various other local churches.

Community Building

Not only do we link community members with resources that offer the services that can help, we also partner with various local organizations to answer unfulfilled needs.

Our community partnerships, programs, and initiatives include:

  • Pressley Ridge Behavioral/Mental Health Services

  • Family First Health Services
  • CHI St. Joseph’s Children’s Health Columbia Dental Center
  • Power Packs Project
  • School Supply Drives
  • GED Program

At Community Life Network, we put resources and knowledge together to address challenges in the Columbia community. Call or email us today to take the first step in finding the help you need!

Family First Health Services

Through our alliance with Family First Health Services, we help bring primary health care to community members of all ages.

School Supply Drives

Community Life Network joined forces with the Columbia Borough School district, Our lady of Angel’s School and Columbia Headstart and other organizations to make sure our area’s schools and students have the supplies they need. We help organize the drives for supplies and raise funds to support the program. Over the summer and during National Night Out we collect markers, crayons, pens, pencils, notebooks, and financial donations. Supplies and funds collected go to public and private schools in our local community and to CAP Head Start. We also provide supplies and funds to schools on an as-needed basis throughout the school year.

Support 15 with $15

 We would like to ask all those who support us to join in and give a one-time gift of $15 to honor our 15 years of service to the community.

You can choose to continue your giving each month, or just help us grow our partnerships, impact, and service to the residents of Columbia to enable our town to be a great place to live, work, and visit!
