Due to inclement weather, the Care Center and Food Pantry are closed Wednesday, January 30.


Until further notice, the Food Pantry will be open from 6:00–7:00pm for limited outdoor distribution service.

Kids diapers will be distributed on the first and third Wednesdays of each month during the food distribution.

Our mission is to promote hope, dignity and empowerment to transform lives.

At the heart of the Center is a simple desire to love others and build a community where every person is welcomed and valued. We put this in action each week by providing people with practical help and support to navigate life’s challenges. Together with churches, organizations and local groups, we serve others by investing in their lives, forming relationships and introducing people to the life-changing power of God’s love and truth.


Clothes Closet

Wednesdays, 6:00-8:00pm

We help people find affordable, new and gently used, clothing. Proceeds made go towards creating jobs in the Clothes Closet. We have prayer and activities for kids as well as monthly community events.


Resource Connections

Wednesdays, 6:00-8:00pm

We connect people to community resources by sitting down with each person, listening to their stories, and offering practical and confidential help to address their current needs.


Food Pantry

Wednesdays, 6:00-8:00pm

We distribute bagged groceries to 200-250 families in need each week. The pantry serves to anyone who needs to make ends meet.


Jobs Program

We seek to empower unemployed or underemployed individuals with skills needed to retain employment. We provide training, mentorship, job placement and follow-up.


Family Preservation

We strengthen family relationships and empower parents. We partner with Safe Families, which provides children with temporary housing while parents get needed support. Volunteers are Host Families who house children, Family Friends who support Host Families and Coaches who help parents.


English Language Groups

Every Wednesday night, between 6:00-8:00pm, we have conversation-style groups and one-on-one tutoring. We welcome everyone, at any level, to come and learn English!
