Since 1977, the focus of the ACLAMO Social Services team has been to provide individuals and families with direct bi-lingual assistance where at all possible, and offer referrals to other professional agencies when necessary.
The Director of Social Services and assistant case worker assist close to 3,000 people a year in our Norristown location.
Issues brought by individuals and families often include immigration, housing, employment, mental health, parenting, insurance, and health access.
Over the years, ACLAMO’s bilingual family services teams have helped thousands receive health insurance, primary care, dental care and other health services.
In other areas, we have led with community partnerships, successfully launching Montgomery County’s first bilingual senior services and behavioral health and cancer prevention initiatives.
In immigration we have expanded our partnership with HIAS, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, in providing a welcoming and secure environment for immigrants and their families with immigration issues.
When necessary, ACLAMO is also a referral agency for families in need of quality and affordable legal services.
Among our other partnering agencies who assist us with services and referrals are with the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit, CADCOM, the Montgomery County Health Department, Mission Kids, Maternal and Child Health Consortium, Montgomery County Office of Children and Youth, Laurel House, Norristown Regional Health Center, Montgomery County Legal Aid, and Central Montgomery MH/MR.
