How We Help

We put faith into action to comfort, care for, and advocate for all people in crisis by strengthening the vulnerable and promoting self-sufficiency. Our programs feed the hungry and homebound, shelter the homeless, strengthen families, assist the physically and emotionally challenged, and deliver consultation and assistance to immigrants. We serve all people without regard to age, race, or religion. All are welcome.
