Helping the Poor and Disadvantaged


Mission: To make a positive difference in the lives of the homeless, hungry and mentally ill through professionally supportive relationships with caring adults, in order to assist them in achieving their highest potential of wellness and independence and move them from poverty to an economically viable standard of living.

To this end, the Mission has established a network of programs that are designed to address each cause contributing to or allowing a person or family to become homeless. However, this can only be accomplished with the cooperation of other service providers, corporate supporters, charitable foundations, and government funding.

Our Model and Performance Matrix

Shelter: An average of 80 single adults and eight families with children find refuge in the shelter each night. Clients are offered a hot shower, clean pajamas, a clean bed, and personal hygiene supplies. A hot evening meal and a breakfast are served. Children have a place to do homework.

Soup Kitchen: Open 365 days a year, over 127,750 cooked meals allow poor people who are hungry to receive a nutritionally balanced hot noon-time meal.

Food Pantry: An equivalent to 45,500 meals annually in bagged groceries is provided to the poor once a week.

Affordable Housing: Manage 16 units of affordable housing for poor working families.

Thrift Store: Here a poor family may obtain clothing and basic household items at low cost or no cost based on need.

Supervised Living: The program has 78 clients, including an eight-bed group home for chronically mentally ill adults.

A Heartfelt Thanks to our Generous Supporters.
