This month, Barnabas Chief Program Officer, Linda Ellis, MA, MSW, LCSW, reports on the recent move of our Barnabas location in Callahan.
Where is the new Callahan office and when is it open?
At the end of July, we moved our Callahan office to 45103 Green Avenue. It's a yellow house behind Callahan Baptist Church. Our hours of operation remain the same: Monday and Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 pm.
What types of services are available in the Callahan office?
Barnabas provides crisis assistance for rent and utilities, vouchers for clothing and furniture, a bike for transportation to work, and emergency food. Anyone seeking assistance must be a Nassau County resident and meet specific income requirements.
Can West Nassau County residents also receive services at the Fernandina Beach office?
Yes. Not all Barnabas services are available in our Callahan office. Our main Barnabas Center in Fernandina Beach provides primary medical and dental care for the uninsured at significantly reduced fees. And, Gerri's Corner also is located in this main office, offering free resources to women with cancer.
How do individuals obtain Barnabas' services at the Callahan office?
We continue to encourage West Nassau County residents who are seeking our assistance to first contact our main office at (904) 261-7000 to schedule an appointment with a volunteer or resource coordinator during the Callahan office hours.
How can donors and volunteers help?
If you're interested in volunteering at any of our Barnabas locations, donating clothing, furniture and food, please contact our main Barnabas Center at 1303 Jasmine Street, Fernandina Beach, 902 261-7000. Thanks in advance for your generous support!
