Val Verde County Community Center
The Val Verde County Community Center is a Non-Profit Organization, which primary purpose is to provide services to all residents of Val Verde County. Since the Community Center first opened, the services provided have greatly grown in numbers. Our goal is to provide an extensive selection of services to better the lives of the residents of Val Verde County, free of charge.
Food Bank Program
Among the many services that the Community Center provides, one of the programs that has proven a great success is the "Food Distribution Program", the program consists of a monthly commodity food bag distribution for residents 60 yrs. of age and older, along with a Food Donations Program that is available to county residents regardless of age. The Food Donations Program distributes a number of different types of food from fresh produce, canned goods, bread etc... With the assistance of the South Texas Food Bank located in Laredo, TX. , the Val Verde County Community Center has had an increase of 600 plus commodities provide for needy families.
The Home-bound Program is a program made possible through the efforts of Commissioner Flores, as it is NOT mandated by the South Texas Food Bank. The program was started to help the residents of Val Verde County even further. With the assistance of the Foreman of Precinct 3, this program allows the staff to deliver food bags to elderly residents that do not have the means of transportation or may be too ill to present themselves at the community center for their monthly commodities.
ALL SERVICES PROVIDED AT THE VAL VERDE COMMUNITY CENTER ARE FREE OF CHARGE.
Social Security Office
The Val Verde County Community Center is pleased to announce a face to face video conference service provided by the Social Security Office thru the means of a Social Security self-help personal computer. The Community Center has been the main location for Social Security help and advice on Social Security matters, since the Social Security Administration closed its Del Rio office in 2013. The SSA had been looking for a location to continue assisting the residents of Val Verde County through other means of communication. The Community Center offered them some office space free of charge in efforts to continue expanding the services offered at the Community Center. To this day, it has proven to be a very successful program.
