Each year we provide services for thousands of families.
Meals & Groceries
Crisis Ministries provides groceries several times a year to thousands of families. We also provide bread, sweets and other perishables every two weeks. When we receive more of any given perishable than we can give to families, we share these items with smaller food pantries and our Irving Heritage Senior Center for their free breakfast and reduced cost lunches. Additionally we provide a daily meal bag to road warriors.
Upon request we provide a wide variety of items as available. These include soap, deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, lotion, feminine products, and diapers. Full size products are provided to families and sample/hotel sizes are provided to the road warriors.
Reading glasses and some other services are available.
Crisis Ministries partners with other organizations to house road warriors during extreme weather. This includes renting rooms, cots and the purchasing of blankets and other items to assist our friends on the street with protection from the elements.
Limited financial assistance is available for a wide variety of expenses. Utilities, rent, transportation and repairs are available to qualified individuals. An appointment must be scheduled to apply and home visits may also be needed. Some expenses may require participation in a spending workshop.
We post local jobs and also provide direct referrals. Assistance with developing a resume and some financial assistance may be available to take classes to prepare an individual for the workplace. This may include assistance with certification fees.
