Virtual Services during COVID-19

Central Susquehannna Opportunites is remote!


Just because the physical offices remain closed to protect the health of our customers, does not mean staff is not ready, willing, or able to help. All sites continue to supply services for individuals in Columbia, Montour, and Northumberland Counties. Gale Zalar, Chief Executive Officer reports, "Case management situations for basic needs and assistance are being done by telephone."


From food resources to job searches, case managers are ready to help remotely.


Please call us at 570-644-6575 ext. 171 if you have any questions or need help. Staff will be available between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m, Monday through Friday.
