“Loaves and Fishes has been extremely helpful with any needs I have had. I can’t say enough good things about this organization.” We received these kind words from one of our neighbors who received financial assistance.
We are very grateful to individuals like this who trust us with their difficult life experiences and allow us to work with them through our food market which provides access to healthy food or through our agency run programs such as financial assistance, car donation, resource meetings, public benefit applications, tax return preparation, job search assistance, and Moving Up which helps participants take steps toward self-sufficiency.
One of the core challenges faced by residents we serve is the lack of sufficient income to meet their basic needs due to unemployment or under employment.
