Sometimes the best way to be living proof of a loving God to a watching world is simply meeting people where they are at.

Common Areas of need

Living Expenses

Rent assistance, utilities bill pay, and other living needs can be met in part or whole on a case-by-cases basis. 


Food assistance can be provided in the form of groceries and grocery gift cards. We will also connect you with local food banks.


We understand often in times of medical recovery or recent loss, making a meal is last on the list.  Meal trains can be organized for multiple kinds of situations.

House Projects

Small projects like fixing a leaky sink, repairing part of a wood patio, or checking on a thermostat can be addressed by our incredible team!


If you are unable to physically care for your yard let us know so we can send someone to help.

Childcare / Adult-care Respite

Sometimes caregivers need help or simply a day off so they can emotionally and spiritually recover.
