Our Mission

Benzie Area Christian Neighbors strives to improve the quality of life for people with limited resources in our community by providing food, clothing, financial assistance, education and social support in collaboration with area resources.

  • BACN has been the caring community of Neighbors helping Neighbors for 38 years

  • Our philosophy is that we are all Neighbors, with gifts to give and needs to be met

  • BACN's role in the community is not only direct assistance, but also connection to other agencies providing basic needs
