So we've tried to compensate for that by providing enhanced bus service through here in particularly, we have three Arlington transit buses, three art routes that come through this location, so that people from you know all different directions can have bus service to get here and at the same time, would have the kind of facility that we could that meet the standards. That we've said. We.
See, on average in in a year over 60,000 clients for food assistance, basic shelter and housing benefits like food stamps and Medicaid health, mental health, substance, abuse prevention and counseling, aging and disability child welfare.
