  • Our Impact
    All of our efforts are based on two principles: mercy and justice. Mercy is meeting basic needs when and where possible. Justice is working to make access to services easier and breaking down barriers which keep people living in poverty from attaining their highest potential. We insure that all those who are mobile and hungry can have nutritious meals; we make access to new/gently used clothing and health services and education free for those who need them. We are working with and advocating for improved services and resources for those living outside. We are actively engaged in workforce development activities to respond to business needs for qualified workers and workers' needs for meaningful jobs paying living wages.
