Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to prevent hunger and homelessness in our community through the provision of basic needs and transform lives through case management, career training, two generation financial literacy and coaching, computer skills education and job-readiness opportunities to help families earn more money, save money and reduce debt.

Provide a client choice food pantry open 6 days a week.
Work closely with homeless families to establish goals for the family to become and remain stably housed.
Transform lives through case management, career training, two generation financial literacy and coaching, computer skills education and job-readiness opportunities to help families earn more money, save money and reduce debt.

Established in 1968, we have a wide variety of support partnerships with local churches, schools and businesses to sustain programs.
We utilize over 200 volunteers to efficiently carry out our programs thereby reducing costs.
We own our own building and are debt free.

We have accomplished remodeling a 2,000 sq. ft. market style food pantry focusing on good nutrition by offering fresh produce, dairy and frozen meat in addition to non perishable items.

We have a free 12-week education class designed to give students necessary life-skills, computer skills and other soft skills.

We are developing an 6-week Financial Literacy program designed to help Parents and Children understand finances, earn more money, learn to save money and reduce debt.
