Nearly half of the low-income people who turn to the Mission for food and clothing are seniors trying to supplement their fixed food budget and make ends meet.
Twice a month, the Mission hosts a seniors’ fellowship, which includes a meal and groceries to take home, in addition to prayer, games and camaraderie.
Seniors often suffer in silence from hunger, isolation and depression, and for many, this is a special chance to dress-up and connect spiritually and socially with others. These fellowship gatherings provide a source of comfort to the few hundred seniors who participate and are living in poverty and in need hope.
Our Comprehensive Family Resource Center is also committed to meeting the needs of seniors, many who are on disability. Besides food, the center offers clothing and household items like eating utensils, wall decor, shampoo, flower vases, pillows, blankets and tablecloths.
