The mission of the Food & Care Coalition is to alleviate hunger and diminish the plights of poverty for those who enter our doors. Our primary objectives include finding suitable housing, teaching financial accountability, facilitating an elevation in personal morals and values, and helping each patron achieve their full potential.
Mr. Brent Crane
BS Degree from Brigham Young University in Family Studies; Non Profit Management Certificate from University of Utah.
As the executive director of the Food & Care Coalition, I have always enjoyed being part of an organization that actively recruits community participation, for we are the ones who ultimately share the stewardship of one of society's more persistent social problems — poverty. The structure and nature of society is of such complexity that the probability of the issue persisting is inevitable. Nevertheless, there is an important lesson which is present by the very existence of it — and one that I believe God intended. At stake, the moral development and strength of character of every human being.
I am grateful to work in an environment where the microscope continually measures my commitment to moral behavior and resoluteness to character. I am grateful that the Food & Care Coalition offers the community this same platform. The prospect for growth extends to every individual who visits. Many redeeming qualities are learned, shared and fostered — whether we be the giver or the receiver. Love and compassion toward our fellow man is the purest of motivators and is the sweetest of life's learned gifts. My hope is that The Coalition can continue to serve as a vehicle of tolerance and love for both myself and all others who need the time and practice to learn these appreciable qualities.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit
We believe in the inherent worth of people and embrace the philosophy that trusting relationships between patron, staff, and volunteer are vital in realizing this end. In order to succeed, charity and compassion from the community must be met by accountability and a personal desire to learn and grow by those served. The Food & Care Coalition by design, offers daily opportunities for the community to support, influence and participate both in the policymaking and operation of agency programs to meet these objectives.
This approach creates an environment where homeless men, women, and children can restore their self-esteem, retain their human dignity, and regain the power and abilities necessary to become self-sufficient and productive members of our community.
