Emergency Services

We meet people experiencing poverty and homelessness at their physical points of need by providing food, shelter, clothing, household items, and basic clinic services. These emergency services provide for the immediate needs of families and individuals, giving them the opportunity to also learn how they can make a lasting life change through our long-term programs.


If you or your loved ones are in immediate need of food, you are welcome to dine at our Lawrence Street Community Center, open every day of the year. The center serves three meals daily:




5:30 A.M.

12 P.M.

6:30 P.M.
