Immigrants and other newcomers to the County often have a wide variety of needs, but don't know where to go for help.  The Gilchrist Center serves as a welcome center and gateway to help people navigate the many services Montgomery County has to offer, so they can get the help they need.  Each of our sites has extensive information about local government and nonprofit resources that can help all County residents connect with food assistance, health care, legal services, housing information, job-related resources, and get help with other needs.
