Wednesday Resource center

You are welcome to complete an order for personal hygiene, cleaning supplies and paper goods as well as enjoy dinner with us. Our mission is to provide CARE for the whole person as we help people remove the barriers and build the resources needed to get to the next place in life. This means that not only do we provide free personal care items, but we also offer opportunities for relational, spiritual, and life skill support and training.
The HELP PROGRAM
The Care Center assists with utilities, rent, food, and other items throughout the week for folks in our community who have physical needs. The Care Center helps by offering three $50 dollar gifts ($150 total for one year), that you can earn by participating in an outreach or some other hour-long community service to receive each of those $50 gifts. More info on how the HELP Program works can be found here. In addition, The Help Program connects our guests with other community resources that can be found here.
SPARK Life coaching
Spark Life Coaching, a program of the Care Center, exists to be the spark that propels people to take the next step in life, whatever that looks like for you. We do this through one-on-one life coaching sessions paired with practical skills based workshops on topics such as job placement, parenting and finances. We also offer service opportunities to empower participants to give back to the community in a practical way. We strive to remove barriers that people often encounter when trying to get ahead by offering financial assistance to participants.
