Our Mission

Our mission is to provide access to food, utility bill assistance, and educational resources for area residents who have experienced or are experiencing an emergency.

Our Vision

Our vision is to close the gap of unmet emergency needs for area residents through regional collaboration with partners, community members, and social service agencies to:

  • Equip local congregations with resources 

  • Compliment human and social services

  • Implement a diverse, united approach to addressing acute needs

Our History

In 1988, several congregations worked in concert with the Chesterfield Colonial Heights Department of Social Services and came together to create an alliance to serve those experiencing emergencies who reside in Chesterfield, Colonial Heights, Dinwiddie, Hopewell, Petersburg, and Prince George, Virginia.
