Help your Neighbors

We believe that we receive by giving and give by receiving. Will you help us give to those who are in need? Together we make a community.



“A caring community of Neighbors helping Neighbors”

NeighborsThroughout 2014 the Board of Directors is reviewing our current and future facility needs, asking we can better support critical services like food and clothing while also encouraging support to Neighbors moving toward self-sufficiency.  The vision that is developing: collaboration with regional service partners within the social services realm provide programing and services locally to our neighbors, and to expand and fortify opportunities in adult education, job readiness and basic life skills.

In support of this the Board of Directors has begun a facility planning process to review options for use of the unoccupied portion of our building.  A facility renovation plan is expected in 2014 that will allow for more training and educational offerings and better efficiency in our pantry, clothing center and computer lab and will address safety issues with our parking area.

We are awed by the potential before us and by the realization that none of our past success or future plans will be possible without your continued support.  Please come visit us this season and see firsthand the impact your gift is making.  Help us strengthen this caring community of Neighbors helping Neighbors.
