About Our Community Wellness Program

Poverty severely impacts health and wellness.

The people we serve on a daily basis struggle with basic survival. They often lack the minimum necessities required to live and function, let alone thrive.

Hierarchy of Needs Pyramid

Food is usually the most immediate need for those we serve. Yet once our guests have eaten, they often ask us for help with other pressing needs.

Our Community Wellness Program has evolved out of these conversations. Our goal is to provide consistent help with the most commonly requested immediate essentials and to build an effective referral network that helps with longer-term needs.
