Our Mission...
We provide food, clothing, shelter, guidance, health and referral services to economically disadvantaged individuals and families, and assist and encourage those whom we serve to achieve self-sufficiency.

2015 Fundraising

Please attend our August 14th, 2015 Gala Fundraiser! For the first time in over 40 years, we face the real possibility of reducing services to our clients. The need is increasing, but our contributions are only about half of last year.
