The Telemon Corporation seeks your input.

Telamon Corporation is a private non-profit with a mission to be advocates for those in need.  Our services include budget and credit counseling, financial literacy, housing for the homeless, employment & training, affordable housing, information & referral and a food pantry.  
As the Community Action Agency for Berkeley and Jefferson County, we are required to conduct a community needs assessment once every three years.  The information gathered from this assessment, will be used to determine if the programs we currently offer are meeting community needs, identify unmet needs, and how we might meet these needs through our agency or through partnerships with other agencies in the community.
Please click on the link below to complete the assessment.  By completing the needs assessment you will provide Telamon Corporation with valuable insight as to how people in all walks of life perceive need within our community.  We do not ask for your name so please feel free to be open with your responses.  
If you have any questions, feel free to contact our office at 304-263-0916.  
Monday – Friday 8:00am-4:30pm
