Our Mission

To safeguard and protect our most vulnerable community members. We provide intensive case management, which includes food, housing assistance, and referrals to those in need of emergency aid.

Problems We Solve

  • We offer compassion and hope during times of personal crisis treating, those in need with dignity and respect.
  • We feed the hungry, prevent homelessness and help clients reach self-sufficiency.


How We Help

We assist over 57,965 clients each year with a staff of 5 and over 2,359 volunteers. Through our main office and 7 satellite locations, we provide emergency assistance to prevent homelessness through the utilization of our Federal EFSP and Foundation grants.

Our successful program utilizes a case management system. This system consists of a 90-day plan to connect clients with services. These services consist of food, baby needs, gift cards for clothing, rent/mortgage assistance, and water bill assistance. Along with other important ancillary services.
