who we are
Welcome to the Benefits Enrollment Center. Our team is here to help clients in Alabama and Mississippi apply for benefits that help them with affording healthy food, saving on their home utilities, and with Medicare premiums. All of our services are always Free and Confidential.
Our program is housed under Feeding the Gulf Coast and started as SNAP Outreach in 2011. We started with a few VISTA volunteers and now are a team of 14 coordinators, specialists, and leadership team. In 2016 we moved from assisting with SNAP only to being a Benefits Enrollment Center, which allows us to assist seniors in applying for additional benefits outside of SNAP. These benefits include, but are not limited to, heat and energy assistance, farmers market vouchers, Medicare Savings Plan, and Extra Help.
