Food 4 Kids
This program addresses weekend hunger in children who are identified as “under-nourished”. The idea is to provide non-refrigerated, individual serving sized, nutritional snacks that children can open and eat. No can opener, microwave or stove needed. Some of these children are left to fend for themselves on the weekend while parents work.
Help Nourish a Child
Victims of physical, emotional and sexual abuse receive critical counseling by licensed professionals. As they get their lives back on track, clients are also provided budgeting, goal-setting and financial planning assistance.
Needs Council volunteers provide “friendly support” to homebound seniors and rides to medical appointments since many have no family nearby. Community members adopt and provide gifts to these seniors and disabled adults at Christmas.
Children and their families are provided assistance with coats, school supplies, food, childcare, scholarships, parenting classes and Christmas assistance with the help of many community volunteers.
