Through our Social Service Office, our Food Pantry is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. Eligible recipients are able to come once a month to receive food items, hygiene products, and cleaning supplies.

Our Case Worker is available to meet with individuals by appointment (walk-in appointments are granted so long as space is available on the schedule) Monday through Friday from 1:00 p.m until 3:30 p.m. Individuals meet with our Case Worker to discuss resources that are available to help meet the current need.

We offer opportunities for people to complete volunteer and community service hours. (Please call and speak with Amanda Guerrero for more information on how to sign-up.)
