The Family Ministry Center (FMC) is Central Union Mission’s hub for family services where people struggling with insufficient food and clothing can find help. The Family Ministry Center provides food and clothing to approximately 5,750 people per month (families, including many single mothers, grandparent care-givers and isolated senior citizens). We distribute groceries that provide over three million meals each year through the Mission’s Relief & Restoration Program. We provide computer training, legal aid, ESOL classes, Bible studies, life skills classes, services for senior citizens with the monthly Seniors Fellowships in both English and Spanish, parenting classes, baby showers, Christmas gifts for children in need with Operation Christmas Miracle, Thanksgiving supplies, school supplies for children with Operation Back Pack and more.

The Relief & Restoration Program (R & R) is designed to provide a community where needy, broken families and individuals have access to free resources that provide relief from such burdens. Our goal is to restore the hurting, hungry and lost community to being better, living wiser, knowing Jesus Christ.
In addition to free food and clothing, the R & R program provides pastoral counsel, encouragement and prayer, an on-site social worker to help with special circumstances, and special events throughout the year.
