Providing Meals To Our Neighbors In Need
We are here to assist our neighbors in need who come through our doors with a myriad of concerns and needs. One way we do that is by ensuring folks have access to meals throughout the week. HELP provides breakfast (a la carte), lunch, and a few dinners each week. We depend heavily on our partner churches, community groups, and neighbors to help us provide over 4,000 meals each year to our clients.
