Essentials for Our CommunityWe are a locally run non-profit organization formed to assist local individuals and families with obtaining the basic needs of life. We work in partnership with local businesses and private donors to provide for these needs. Unlike a food bank, we do not distribute food items, but instead provide our clients with prepaid gift cards. These cards can be used to obtain groceries, baby items, and gas.

Our Volunteers also provide continuing services to our clients through one on one counselling/ mentoring opportunities, and by directing them to other financial/ mental health/ emotional/ crisis support services available in the community. 

Our clients come from all walks of life and circumstances. We desire to meet each person where they are at and help them grow to achieve success within our community.
